Emilio Espadas

Emilio Espadas was born in Uayma, Yucatan. He descends from a mayan potters family, that has been using ancestral techniques for generations, as well as experimental techniques by integrating different kinds of muds and diverse mineral substances from the region on his art. He therefore has obtained an extraordinary outcome on his smells and textures that reminds us our natural bond with Mother Earth.

The Workshop

Emilio Espadas and his family hosted a workshop that took place inside the Beach Pavilion of Art With Me 2019, inviting the assistants of the festival to learn about his technique and the process on creating amazing pottery pieces in minutes. All of the workshop assistants took a piece created by them home and lots of valuable knowledge from Emilio.
