At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.

Together, my blog and my crafts represent a magical portal into my life. They often become so intertwined with my existence that I forget what's real and what's fictional. I kind of like it that way.

Meet the Atelier Malpaso


The Malpasos

Fun, functional, and unique ceramic pieces inspired by the beauty of the Caribbean and the charming diversity of New York City. Handmade with love by Colombian hands.


Hand Painted Garments

Because sometimes the creative mind finds lively expressions in sartorial ways. Unapologetically loud and fun, made-to-oder, one-of-a-kind, and hand-painted garments that will definitely make you smile.

I love pasta. I can pretty much eat it every day. But you know what is better than pasta? Pasta being served in a piece of art like the Malpaso bowls! Pasta la vista baby!

I found a baby bird by the front yard of my building this past summer. I took her upstairs to my apartment’s balcony and made a little house from cardboard. She was warm and loved. Micaela and NachoCheese loved her too. Next morning she managed to leave her cardboard house and she was wandering around my plants. Her mother eventually came to her rescue and took her back home which her -real- family.
I loved her so much! I named her Altagracia. 
This is Altagracia’s family bowl.
