Ricardo Duffy

Laguna Beach, CA

“I was born in Monterey Park, California, in 1951 and grew up in an area called "Las Lomas". I attended Mark Keppel High School where I excelled in art, athletics, and being a prankster. Friends and relatives often said I wouldn't live past the age of twenty-one. One of my nicknames was "El Diablo". I survived a real game of Russian Roulette and other crazy stunts and made it to Ventura College where I became interested in ceramics. After two years there, I transferred to Cal State Fullerton and majored in Art with an emphasis in ceramics. In 1977 I started my own ceramic and photography studio in Costa Mesa. I relocated in 1984 to Laguna Beach and soon afterwards I met Carmen, who is from Mexico, and together we created Monica."
