I'm a Latino Immigrant from Cali, Colombia. I moved here when I was fourteen years old, arrived in California where I spent over ten years, and then moved to Austin, Texas in 2015. I have been making things ever since I can remember, and I have always enjoyed the arts like drawing and painting. In high school, I was introduced to Ceramics, and I fell in love with it right away. Until very recently I was a full time ceramic artist, a production thrower for the past couple of years for Sunset Canyon Pottery Studio, I participated in about twenty local art festivals this past year, to mention a few like Pecan Street Fest, Cherrywood Art Fair, and Art City Austin. Selling my work through a local distributor, some local shops, and online as Kriete Stoneware.
