I am a Colombian born ceramic artist living in NYC. I explore the relationship with different clay bodies to create highly texturized organic and sculptural form as well as functional pottery. I am interested in the ancestral connection with the earth and its elements as my ancestors did in the past to leave behind a living archive of their way of life for future generations to get informed and inspired.
