Mara, an accomplished painter, sculptor and ceramicist, studied engraving with
the famous artist Alfredo Zalce. After studying art in London, she began
working with high-temperature ceramics and created wonderful unique glazes for
her pieces. She then went to study with Italian ceramist, Bruno Terese in
Italy. Mara has had many expositions of her original pieces in Europe, the
United States and Mexico.She developed a fine sensibility in schematic and
precise line drawings. Ceramics is no easy medium for precise line drawings,
yet Mara mastered her technique with brush and stylus and has been able to
portray her life experiences with unrivaled naturalness. We see her universe
on parade in all of her work. Flowers, birds and geometric designs all
represent her personal vision and display her unique perceptions of the
world.After a long illness, Mara passed away in 2007. Since Ceramica Mara has
always been an extended family operation, production of her fine work has
continued. Mara's husband, children and loyal apprentices have consistently
carried out day to day production. Her husband Mariano, an architect, artist
and Ceramica Mara business manager, is passionate about continuing Mara's
legacy. Her daughter Alexandra, artist and history professor, also stepped in
to help the family make a seamless transition in the continuation of the fine
production of Ceramica Mara.Mara was a very prolific artist and while her
current designs are still in production, she has left numerous yet un-
introduced designs to be presented in the future. Alexandra, carrying on her
mother's fine tradition, has also been creating ceramic designs which we were
honored to debut and continue to offer. Mara brought all the beauty of her
soul to walk this earth. We are ever grateful for her creative gifts and pray
that her journey continues in beauty and love. We take great pleasure in
knowing that Mara's artistic wares will grace all of our lives for many years
to come.
