Artist Profile

Angelica Vasquez


Angélica Vásquez Cruz is a master Potter from Atzompa, Oaxaca, Mexico. She began working with clay when she was a child of seven, learning from her parents. Angélica does not actually paint her work, but instead developed a process using “agobes,” her term for natural colored substances, such as stone or volcanic ash, which she uses to add different hues to her pieces. She is the recipient of Mexico’s highest honor for artists, granted by the Mexican Academy of Arts and Sciences.
