"My work stems from my Mexican heritage and family traditions. My interest in creating these objects arises from my fear of these processes being lost and forgotten. Through the use of various objects I hope to render a narrative that seeks to embrace and celebrate these rituals of a new generation. I enjoy seeing these objects evolve through the use of clay just as a story of an event can change over time in the ways of telling it. Ceramics as a material has permanence; it is one of the ways we were able to learn about ancient cultures. There is beauty in these traditions and my aim is to make a mark in my time that will be preserved in the history of ceramic objects."
