BIO (back to top)
Marcia Selsor was born in Philadelphia and received a BFA in Ceramics with Bill Daley at the Philadelphia University for the Arts. She received an MFA from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale with the former British Sculptor, Nicholas Vergette.

She is a Professor Emerita at Montana State University-Billings where she taught ceramics for 25 years. She authored the book “Modelos de la Alfareria de Agost” while researching the traditional potters of Spain during a Fulbright Research Fellowship in 1985-86. She taught ceramics at the Tashkent Institute of the Arts in Uzbekistan on a second Fulbright Award in 1994.

She has had Artists’ Residencies at Banff Center for the Arts in Alberta, Canada; two in Uzbekistan; the Straumur Artists’ Commune in Iceland; the Archie Bray Foundation in Montana; The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, PA; and La Meridiana near Certaldo, Italy.

Her work is in public and private collections on three continents. She works in a variety of ceramics techniques. Her architectural pieces often incorporate the sculptural imagery of Romanesque symbolism. Her Raku plaques reflect the vivacity of living in Montana through the imagery of wild mustangs that live near her home. She teaches workshops internationally in Spain, the U.S., Italy and Canada. In 2005 she served as the Ceramics Program Director at the University of Hawaii-Manoa and has served on the technical staff for Ceramics Monthly since 1998. Her work has appeared in several books: Extruded Ceramics by Baird, Advanced Raku Techniques, Alternative Kilns and Firing Techniques, and Raku; A Practical Approach. She has also written numerous articles for Ceramics Monthly, Pottery Making Illustrated, BAR (British Archaeological Reports) and NCECA Journals.
