Hueso Seco translates to "Bone Dry," in Español. This is a term we use in ceramics to call the state clay our vessels needs to be in before going through its first bisque firing. I'm inspired by the transformation of it's fragility into something durable, functional and beautiful in its unique way. The name also pay tribute to my affinity for skeletons, the frame work that is our body and the symbolism of death, decomposition and reconnection with the Earth.
When I am able to, I donate a percentage of my proceeds to organizations that support such transformation of strength and growth to others, humans and animals alike.
All of my work is handmade, painted and glazed by hand and evolves with my own evolution. As of now, I enjoy making sculptural planters by carving away at a wheel thrown or coiled forms.
