Marcella Austenfeld
I am a maker.  I come from a family of makers, hunters and gatherers.  Family from both sides were well acquainted with the land and how to live off it.  My father is a writer, he tells his stories through words.  My mother, a homemaker, tells her stories through food and hospitality.

One of my favorite quotes is “ Not all who wander are not lost”.  I am not lost, but have taken many detours in my artistic journey to discover and learn skills, materials, techniques to see my stories/design visions come through in tokens of adornment.

I am drawn to natural elements, inspired by native american craftsmanship and culture. As an adult I discovered a secret tucked away in an aged trunk.  After her death, we learned that my grandmother was born in Alberta to a unwed native american teenage girl and given up for adoption.  

Family roots run deep; and having lost my grandmother at an early age I like to think that heritage has influenced my design, a connection to her unknown past.

Marcella is Canadian, born in Northern Ontario raised throughout the Canadian provinces.  She now lives Orinda with her american husband, two teenage boys and loyal canine companion Rusty.
