Hello! I am Marcela Rosemberg, a Toronto-based artist who specializes in unique hand-made glass pieces intimately connected with nature and my Jewish faith. Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.
Finding glass as a medium of expression for my art was truly a blessing for me. It was the key that opened the doors for my family and I into beautiful Prince Edward Island, Canada from Buenos Aires, Argentina, 17 years ago allowing us to start a new journey.
Beauty, simplicity, elegance and functionality are essential components in my designs. At my beautiful studio in Toronto, I’m always looking for that special blend of colour and texture that leads me to each piece of art I carefully design. The way I treat glass is as if it were a human being, by respecting it and not pushing it. This allows me to understand its flow, displacement, behavior, and action up to its most intricate inner part – its core. That is why I always say, “Each time a piece leaves my studio I feel a little bit of my soul is going with it”.
