My name is Veronica Arquilevich Guzman, I am an artist, I do ceramics and paintings.
I created Maya, a few years ago, when I was living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; That beautiful place and exhilarating city gave me the inspiration to start creating a Series of ceramics pieces that were inspired on the nature and the surroundings that I had around me.
After moving around 5 different cities in Asia, and recollecting more inspiration at India, Vietnam, and China, now I live in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I still have around me what I love most: nature, and I can work in what I like most: my art.
I work at my home/studio, and I am grateful and very happy to be able to create this beautiful pieces of nature and ceramics.
My pieces talked about me growing up camping and collecting mushrooms with my dad, and learning to love and respect nature in all senses.
My ceramics are hand made designs that are naturally imperfect, casually irreverent and playfully delightful. None of the objects you can find here are alike because they were individually hand-crafted.
