Young Ceramicists from Casa Hogar Santa Julia

By Rosa Torres

Almost three years ago, six beautiful little girls began to play with clay on Saturdays, under the direction of Camila de la Peña and me, in the garden of Casa Hogar Santa Julia Don Bosco. It started as a social service project for Camila and quickly became a very dear and important activity for all the people involved.

The kids learned to use clay to make very simple works. With time their works evolved and became more and more sophisticated. We then moved the workshop to Estudio de Ceramica los Camaleones and decided that a show would be the logical conclusion to finish the training of this talented group.

This experience has been a trip full of surprises and wonder for the children and for us. We came to know each of the young artists and had the opportunity to witness their development through the exercise of the qualities needed for any artistic discipline: freedom, patience, imagination, respect, and hard work.

Carmen Ortiz creates little worlds that allow her an understanding of her life. Ana Cecilia Sánchez (the oldest, now 16) is a very intelligent, reflective, and mature girl whose work distills all of her qualities. Esmeralda Salina´s pieces are sweet, soft, and feminine. Lupita Velazco, a compassionate and loving child with strong creative skills, has developed a soulful body of work. Susana Vázquez plays all the time; this playfulness makes her work very whimsical and delightful. Silvia Márquez, the dreamer, goes from one creative place to the other hoping to find that dream.

We are very pleased to invite you to attend the opening of this special show on Saturday, June 18, from 5 to 8pm, in the main patio at Casa de Europa en México, San Francisco 23. It will run until June 23. Artists and teachers want to thank Madre Lidia and Madre Laura for their unconditional support and enthusiasm and to thank the Instituto Sanmiguelense for allowing Camila to have this unique and wonderful project as her social service. Thanks also go to Casa de Europa en México for donating the time and space to make this exhibition possible.

Come, enjoy the show, have a glass of wine, and support the young artists and their home: Casa Hogar Santa Julia Don Bosco.
