Porcelain, paint.

'“My work stems from my memories of growing up as one of 12 children in Los Angeles, CA.

Through the use of various objects such as Huevos and Peregrinaje, I aim to construct information-rich installations that speak of my experiences.

I enjoy seeing these objects evolve through the use of clay - just as a story of an event can change over time in the ways of telling it. As a Mexican American, I hope to create a narrative that celebrates the rituals of a new generation.

My interest in creating pieces based on my heritage and family traditions arises from my fear of these processes being lost and forgotten. Ceramic pieces have permanence; we learned about ancient cultures through studying their ceramics.

There is beauty in these traditions and my aim is to make a mark in my time that will be preserved in the history of ceramic objects.”
