Story Behind the Art:

Ruiz uses a unique process in which he first shapes the piece by hand from clay. After firing it at a temperature of 1832-degrees Fahrenheit, he applies bright enamels and gilt. The finished piece is then bathed in a coat of clear enamel, which protects and enhances the vivid and expressive use of color.

'I am a self-taught artist, dedicating myself to ceramics and craft making since my youth. I specialize in masks influenced by the Vicus, Moche, and Nazca cultures. I focus largely on the mix of form and color; despite a lack of formal training I have created a unique, personal style.'

  • Ceramic "Rainbow Demon" Mask (Peru)

    Some of the colors are a little different.(e.g., the little horns in the middle are dove gray, as are the large outermost concentric circles on the eyes.) The face is not as bright. If I hadn't placed it with two other items- including another ceramic mask & a clock all of which fit very snugly on the top of a closet above the door molding, I probably would have taken it down and repainted some details, which I've done with some other masks. I like the details in the photo better, & at some point I'll get around to it. The people that create this work are artisans, & not factory-workers who mass produce. I'd imagine they must get bored doing the same exact thing- right down to the details- repeatedly. I don't mind re-doing details- as long as the underlying work is what I expected- or a reasonable facsimile thereof. The work is otherwise exactly as advertised. You have beautiful, unique accessories (and furniture). It's a pleasure to shop on your site.

    Very Bright. I would have appreciated a better hanger in the back and better providance from the artist. On the whole, very happy.
