Guadalupe Robinson: Pottery and Quilting, Railroad Car 1
We at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment are fortunate to have an artist as talented as Guadalupe Lanning Robinson. Guadalupe creates ceramic pots and quilts with incredible craftsmanship and geometric precision. Please visit Guadalupe and her pet birds in Railroad Car 1 next time you come to Lowe Mill!
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 theDeep 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.
