I am a ceramist by family tradition with training in fine arts, design, and photography.
After some time working in different areas always linked to creativity, I returned to live near the family home where my mother’s ceramics workshop was, and I decided to start investigating the possibilities that the material offered me, together with my training in design and art.
In 2015, I started my brand, MIYAYA, with the first collection, NO PLASTIC, of ceramic pieces that imitate the shapes of plastic containers, with the implicit criticism of the indiscriminate use of disposable products. From it, I have worked on different lines with points in common; I usually start from elements that surround us to modify their uses, their meanings and extol forms that go unnoticed due to their daily life. Always with values of sustainability, proximity consumption and aesthetics as pillars of my designs.
