Gabriel Ferro Ferro creates artisanal furniture, which he describes as “functional sculpture.” The pieces, intricately carved, richly stained and painted are inset with hand painted, ceramic cameo and tiles. The artist’s use of cedar as his primary wood adds an aromatic sensory aspect to viewing the work.

Miguel Angel Ferro (Gabriel’s brother), a sculptural ceramicist, presents here masks of majolica, tierra sigillata and raku. Some are very large (up to 136 x 96cm) and beautifully mounted and framed by other artists in the collective.

Well known in Mexico as a master engraver Jose Luis Mendez presents his engraving and ceramic work. His massive (202 x 176cm) engraving “La Gran Cabeza” (featured in the ad in this publication) is alone worthy of a trip to Pozos.

Working in the ancient Roman, ceramic technique of tierra sigillata Felipe Olmos creates beautiful, glossy, smiling skulls mounted on carved bases.

Gustavo Mondujano presents “Dali”, a surrealistic dream of a sculpture of carved wood that is part horse-part dinosaur. Mandujano’s skill of intricate carving will delight and amaze the viewer.
