Is the loving creation of
Natalia Torres Negreira.
Natalia handcrafts each unique piece with presence and care.
" My journey all began with a love of succulents and all things cacti. I've been composing terrariums of all shapes and sizes for many years. This fascination quickly turned itself into something more when friends and family began ordering my pieces. Organically, Ruby and Frank began to expand and so did my creative inspiration. Alongside my love affair with plants came the need to dip my hands deeper into the earth - and so I began playing with clay. My hands quickly realised, after decades of practicing beauty and massage therapy, that clay is just another medium for that nurturing expression. So it comes out in my pieces, that each form has been lovingly crafted by these strong, sensitive hands. I have deliberate aesthetic in mind and bring that flavour to all of my Ruby and Frank creations. Each one is a little different and i love that. Depending first on my hands, my creative expression and then the temperature and the timing of the kiln, add the unknown result of a glaze firing, these pieces take on a character of their own. Ceramics has become the perfect compliment to my cacti obsession and picking the perfect vessel for each plant is the joyful final step in my creative process.
