About the Artist

Marcela Rosemberg glass studio is  the home of the award-winning glass artist. The ocean and her Jewish faith are the main sources of inspiration in her sculptural and functional current work. Art has been a part of her for as long as she can remember.

Finding glass as a medium of expression was truly a blessing for Marcela. It was the key that opened the doors for her and her family into beautiful Prince Edward Island, Canada from Buenos Aires, Argentina, 13 years ago allowing her to start a new journey. And even though she relocated to Cobourg, Ontario three years ago, her colours and designs are still standing strong on the East coast where she created a brand for herself.

Beauty, simplicity, elegance and functionality are essential components in Marcela Rosemberg’s designs. At her studio, she’s always looking for that special blend of colour and texture that leads her to each piece of art she carefully designs. She treats glass as if it were a human being, by respecting it and not pushing it. This allows her to understand its flow, displacement, behavior, and action up to its most intricate inner part… Its core. That is why Marcela always says: “Each time a piece leaves my studio I feel a little bit of my soul is going with it”.
