Mara is an accomplished painter, sculptor and ceramicist who has studied engraving with the famous artist Alfredo Zalce. After studying art in London, she began working with high-temperature ceramics and created wonderfully unique glazes for her pieces. She then went on to study with the Italian ceramist, Bruno Terese, in Italy. Mara has had numerous expositions of her original pieces in Europe, the United States and Mexico.
"She has developed a fine sensibility in schematic and precise line drawings. Ceramics is no easy medium for precise line drawings, yet Mara has 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 pieces, whether they be vases or plaques. Flowers, birds and geometric designs all represent her personal vision and display her unique perceptions of the world." Alfredo Zalce, May 1994
Currently Mara works daily at her studios creating an enchanting array of original pieces in varied mediums. She is a master of the complicated art of mixing glazes and gives her skill each day in overseeing the production of the fine line of ceramic tableware presented here.
