Perfectly shaped piece of pottery done with perfect cuts on the surface on black clay.
About the artist:
I talked to Guille, his mother in order to get information about this fantastic artist. He learned to make pots from The Master, Juan Quezada, his father. At the beginning Efren said he could not make pots but his father urged him to learn: “You can do it” he said, “you just have to try harder”. And he did. His new way to form pieces, with big, dramatic cuts on them show the expertise he acquired in the handling of the clay. He does the cuts when the clay has not dried but it is not too humid. He is also an expert in the use of the brush when he paints perfect geometrical designs. He still uses the old method of pit fire outside his home using pieces of wood to fire their pieces.
