Meet the Artist

Eva is a ceramist with an expertise in making functional objects for the kitchen and house — from plates, bowls, mugs, tumblers, flower vases, and ceramic jewelry. Her pieces are known for their rusticity and romanticism, imperfect, textured and even engraved surfaces that transmit purity, satisfaction and freedom of handmade pieces. She loves working with both stoneware and porcelain, wheel throwing and handbuilding. Much of her inspiration comes from natural elements like earth, sand, and the beach.

As pottery becomes the new mindfulness technique, she would like to share her knowledge with people from different countries, so they, too, can appreciate the beauty of the ceramic process and experience how beautiful and relaxing this art can be.

VAWAA Includes:

  • Introduction to all ceramic phases.
  • Learning potter's wheel techniques like wedging, centering, trimming to make cylinders, tumblers, bowls or plate.
  • Learning hand building techniques to make kitchen homewares, such as plates, bowls, mugs with handles.
  • Introduction to glazes.
  • Nature walks or hike in beautiful landscapes near studio for inspiration and tranquility.
  • Walks around the most artistic areas in Madrid.

    My VAWAA with Eva was terrific. We met in the first day and got to know each other, picked out the projects I wanted to learn, got to know the studio, and then got to work. Eva taught me the techniques she learned herself from masters all over the world, and throughout the lessons we talked about what life in Spain is like. We followed this up with a local lunch and small walk, followed by more cl Read more

    We had a wonderful time during our VAWA with Eva. Both of us were completely new to ceramics and Eva was an incredible teacher. She not only explained the techniques clearly, but provided so much support and great conversation along the way. We appreciated the delicious pastries she brought as well!

    I've had a lot of fun learning a new skill. Eva didn't only know a lot about pottery and ceramics, she also has a great way of transferring her knowledge! It makes me really understand what I am doing and why, rather than just copying what someone else does. Apart from that, Eva's company was also really great, such a nice and warm-hearted person. Plus I really appreciated the tasty chocolate cake Read more
