Marc Rosenthal is a 1973 graduate of the University of St. Thomas Fine Arts Program, in Houston, Texas. After graduating, Marc enrolled in the University of Houston for post graduate studies in lithography, woodworking, and ceramics. He later entered the RITE Program for All Level Art Education and was awarded a Lifetime Teacher Certification.
Marc has created works in a variety of mediums, notably in welded steel, bronze, and ceramic. His sculptures range from six inches high to large scale public artwork eighty five feet in length. He studied pottery and kiln building with Paul Soldner at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass, Colorado. Marc is a co-founder of Clay Arts Vegas, a thriving ceramic studio near downtown Las Vegas.
While pursuing his art career, he worked as an architectural sales rep, selling carved stone fireplaces, columns, and glass mosaics. His work led to opportunities as an estimator for major contractors who specialized in marble and granite projects in Las Vegas, Nevada. After working in Las Vegas for fifteen years, Marc and his wife Mary moved back to Texas in 2014 to be closer to family.
Our studio is in Canyon Lake, Texas. Studio visits are available by appointment; if interested see email for contact below. Marc is currently available for commissions. Marc is a working sculptor, potter, ceramic muralist, and teacher.
I explore duality and paradox in the landscape of humanity, interpreted in figurative ceramic sculptures and pottery. The running themes are loss, a fateful journey, a return, and a rebirth.
