Getting to Know Pedro

Pedro’s anthropomorphic ceramic sculptures are influenced by Pre-Columbian art from South America. He uses many different tools to create his figures, then finishes each piece with glazes and stains. Pedro’s work is never premeditated or planned–it is not until he is in front of the clay that inspiration takes hold. He feels deeply connected to his work and his passion for creating. Of his artwork, Pedro simply states “It is powerful. It is passionate. It is modern. It has soul.”
