Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
– Pablo Picasso
Malpaso Atelier grew out of my desire to give material form to the beautiful, fun, and colorful creatures inside my head. Each of my pieces has a story to tell; some are fictional, some are factual, but all share a little bit of my essence.
My ceramics are crafted with love by Colombian hands in a small pottery studio in New York City’s iconic Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. Combining the colors and forms of the tropics with New York’s exhilarating, shape-shifting character, every Malpaso Atelier piece is surprisingly vibrant, evocative, yet friendly—and will definitely make you smile.
So drop a note, take a peek, and talk to the characters I’ve created. They’re here to listen. They’re here for you.
