"I create handmade porcelain tableware inspired by the very nature of clay and its irregular and pliable inherent characteristic. My tableware tableware is designed and handcrafted to offer perfectly simple forms inspired by a minimalist aesthetic and by the colors and textures found in nature. Forms are intentionally irregular highlighting the presence of the artist’s hand, which honors the clay’s voice as an active participant and collaborator in the process of creating each individual form."Dubhe Carreno is originally from Venezuela. She has a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art and an Masters of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work is inspired by the irregular yet perfect forms and textures in nature as well as her background in dance. She currently teaches ceramics at Northeastern Illinois University.
