Ivone Olivas

    At the age of 13, she learned to do pottery directly from the master Juan Quezada.  Ivone paints white  circular designs leaving intriguing blank spaces on very elegant black or red vessels.

    The same drawing is copied three times on the surface and, on a second look from the top of the piece an spiral shape is found around a cut lip shape.

    Her pieces are made by her husband Florencio Sánchez, also a very talented artist. He forms very thin walled pots with different mouths. The shapes of them added to the  designs painted by Ivone make extraordinary pieces.
