Story Behind the Art:
I come from a family of humble means from the beautiful state of Guanajuato. Dad was a driver for the public transport and mom stayed at home looking after my five sisters and me. I learned from an early age to work hard to be able to provide for one's family, because I had to work when I was in primary school. With a lot of effort and hard work I managed to stay in school and graduate as a teacher. While working as a teacher, from 1979 to 1990, I supplemented my income by being a salesperson for a ceramics workshop. I developed my own client base, but at some point the workshop couldn't keep with their orders, which motivated me to start my own workshop. I opened it in 1979 and I specialize in talavera ceramics for decor and for service. 'I've taken quite a few ceramic courses around the country, organized by Mexico's Ceramists' Society. My technique is 100-percent hand-crafted and I use mineral enamels and paints. I've kept the first vase I've ever made and my pieces are characterized by my own specific style. I enjoy developing new designs. Over the years my workshop has grown to such an extent that I can offer work to people in my community. I'm pleased of the working environment we have created - we really enjoy working with each other. 'However, that has become my greatest challenge: to ensure there is always enough orders so that the artisans at the workshop will always have work, and that I may continue to provide my children with a good education. 'In 1998 I went back to study and earned a degree in International Commerce. In 1998 and 2004 I received State Awards for my work, and from 2004 to 2007 I organized seminars, workshops and courses with the top ceramists of Mexico. 'I have had the opportunity to exhibit my work through individual and collective exhibitions in several countries in Europe, United States, Central and South America. 'I am happy about the opportunity to join Novica and share a part of each one of us through our hand crafted work.'
