I studied ceramics at MOA Toluca, Mexico.
At school, I learned Japanese techniques for making high-temperature ceramic pieces, as well as the philosophy of Master Mokichi Okada and the tea ceremony (bontemae) and flower arrangement (korinka).
After graduating, I started with a personal project called Abracadabra, with which I have been working for 5 years, which consists of a workshop and a brand.
In the brand I sell my work, I make commissions and productions in series.
Currently the workshop is located in a quiet place where you work in the company of nature.

Making Japanese ceramics was not something I thought i could do in Mexico yet Alejandra was able to give us a glimpse of the subtlety and presence that Japanese devote to their art. A unique experience. I highly recommend it.
