Handmade illustrated pottery
As a ceramic artist I am attracted to the relationship between utility and beauty in our everyday handmade pots. I grew up in Quito, Ecuador and graduated with a BFA in printmaking from UNC Asheville.
My work is wheel-thrown using white stoneware clay and fired in an electric kiln which allows me to use jewel color glazes. I incorporate my love of drawing onto ceramic surfaces including animals, plants and geometric patterns. I also decorate with a combination of slip trailing, wax resist and brushwork.
All my pots are dishwasher, microwave and food safe.
