Amazing Ceramic Sculpture

Amazing Ceramic Sculpture

I visited Artsplosure today and met some amazing artists. Among them was Luis Enrique Gutierrez, a master of contemporary ceramic sculpture. I was blown away at the level of detail and rich color themes of his work, absolutely stunning. He learned his art from his father Helio Gutierrez. Check out some of his work at

I also learned about NICA Ceramic Art which was born out of the Peace Corps experience of founder Paul H. Devoti in the indigenous pottery pueblo of San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua. It’s an incredible hotbed of amazing gallery quality ceramic art.  NICA’s mission is to provide exposure for the ceramic artwork of the master artisans of the pueblo as well as the Nicoyan Indian heritage behind their craft.

Anvil Fairy

Some people love to get attention
Talking loud without hesitation
The world revolves around just them
Sometimes you have to count to ten
But wouldn’t we all get a kick
To see the anvil fairy bearing gift
A fifty pounder give or take
To grant our friend a little break
A fractured skull might be too much
A slight concussion would be the touch
And when again his phone does ring
Another gift does fairy bring
