Guadalupe Robinson: Pottery and Quilting, Railroad Car 1
A great fascination with different- colored clays and the textures that can be produced with stoneware has led me to experiment with and study clays for the past thirty years.
I was born and grew up in Mexico City, a place with strong cultural ties and great tradition, full of sights, energy, sounds and flavor.
Bringing together my Mexican heritage with the richness and tranquility of the Deep South has enriched my life. This constantly moves my work toward blending the two cultures.
Continuous respect for the material is a factor I try to maintain in my work. I also have a great reverence for the idea of “craftsmanship” and it is an strong element when creating my work. My work has developed from the respect I have for clay and the joy I experience when working with it.
