My work passionately reflects my Mexican cultural roots. The art forms appear and are created as stories in the round as I transform and mutate a magic fusion of colors, shapes and a way of life into them. I often use faces joined by zigzag or curved lines. Flower petals characteristically fashion the idea of dealing with one’s aura. Some of the vessel forms I use (the goddess series) are used to symbolically connect earth to women… a container used for nutrients of survival. My work also speaks of healing. Pieces are created to capture great depth of emotion, celebration, suffering, and cultural bonding. Slip cast ceramic forms are often fired to cone 01. Glaze fired to cone 07. Finished with acrylics and oils. Stoneware clay sculptures are typically handbuilt utilizing coil and drape techniques. They are then carved and fired to cone 5. The second firing is at cone 07 using low fire glazes. The pieces are then finished in acrylics and oils.
