|What I Love about Ceramics||
What I love about ceramics?
The freedom that allows me to create. The uncertainty of waiting the pieces out of the kiln. The magic of the fire transforming your ideas into reality. Sometimes ugly realities, but always interesting.
|How I started with ceramics||
I was randomly walking through my neighborhood , escaping from my new father in law, who was very demanding of attention, when I saw a sign “Ceramic Lessons by Alejandra Jones”. And there I went…34 years ago and still grateful to my annoying ex-father in law.
|What inspires me||
I never know where my inspiration begins. It is random. Generally an idea pops up in my head and after that the title. Sometimes is the other way around.
|What I'm working on at the moment||
I´m in a transition of works. I recently moved from Argentina to Uruguay, so I´m waiting for new images in my mind.
