Hueso Seco translates to "Bone Dry," in Español. This is a term we use in ceramics to call the state of the clay our vessels are in before firing. It pays tribute to my affinity for skeletons, the frame work that is our body, and the symbolism of death, decomposition and reconnection with Earth.
I'm inspired by the transformation of clay’s fragility into something durable, functional and beautiful in its unique way.
All of my work is painted and glazed by my hands and evolves with my own evolution. I enjoy making sculptural planters by carving away at wheel-thrown or coiled forms.
When I am able to, I donate a percentage of my proceeds to organizations that support transformation of strength and growth to humans and animals alike.
