I am in love with the idea of making art, functional art, out of mud. To me, that’s pure magic! I like to create pieces that make me smile. I draw from memories from my childhood in Spain, and memories from other cultures I have been in contact with.
I first became aware of the functional art side of Pottery when I lived in Japan. The Japanese aesthetics made me want to touch, to look at, to explore the wares, not just use them. first became aware of the functional art side of Pottery when I lived in Japan.

I discovered I could make art late in my life, just because I was curious about playing with mud, and now, I cannot stop... I have learned to balance the elements, earth, water, air, and fire pretty much on my own, experimenting, through a lot of trial and error and fun… Pottery is more than therapy for me, it is an addiction.
When I make my pottery, I pay extra attention at how it will feel in the hands of the people who will use it. I often wonder what kind of food will be served on the plates or bowls. What kind of tea or coffee will be taken with my cups, what occasion?, Who will you partake that occasion with? My pottery is available at several Summer Open Air Markets and Open Studio Tours around Flagstaff. Or by contacting me directly.
