Shaping cotton

  • • Curiosity led Cristina to dedicate herself to handicrafts
  • • Carlos Fontales and Ana Roquero were her teachers
  • • What she likes most is to experiment

Although she studied architecture, Cristina Vallejo has always been interested in researching and experimenting with different materials and craft techniques. That is why throughout her professional career she has continued her education, taking a wide range of courses in jewellery, ceramics, natural dyes and basketry. Her brand, ELSUR, was born when she was still working as an architect. Her projects have varied from major to minor, in a linear sequence: from urban planning to building and interior design, and from there to the development of exhibition projects, furniture design and product design. Each of her works is conceived with a different approach and thus tells a story that lasts in the memory. "I am interested in the relationship we establish with objects, the value that each one assigns to them, how they are part of our lives, of our memories, how we identify or not with them. Objects must communicate and transmit emotions," she says.

A Rope in the Shape of a Vessel

These sewn vessels were made using a sewing machine with a single stitch and subtle hand gestures. Joining the rope, the thread creates a texture on its surface. Conceived as 'textile pottery' it connects us with the ceramic world through its appearance and its process.
