Story Behind the Art:
'I grew up in a close family in Mexico where my parents and relatives have been crafting ceramic pieces for many generations,' Georgina Cabrera says. 'Even as a child, I was fascinated with ceramics because you can transform simple earth and water into a decorative piece. I love to transmit my ideas in the pieces I create. We mix three types of clay with water in a big tub, then add the flowers from reeds on the riverbank before molding the pieces. My designs are crafted and painted by hand.'
