Ceramics from the countryside

  • • Loaira uses 3D printers, PLA and plaster moulds to make her pieces
  • • She uses warps, sheets of clay and stoneware
  • • She is inspired by the environment, the people, and the idiosyncrasies of Galicia

Loaira Pérez studied design at the Mestre Mateo Art School in Santiago de Compostela, painting conservation at The Higher School of Cultural Assets, Conservation and Restoration of Galicia, and fine arts at the University of Vigo. She later completed a master's degree in ceramics at the Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea in Bilbao, where she learned techniques with renowned artisans. With this impressive training, she decided to return to her rural roots. In 2019, thanks to an entrepreneurship grant, she transformed the garage of her grandmother's house in Lomba, Galicia, into her workshop. Since then, she creates pieces of subtle shapes, primitive decorations, and a stony feel. "We work to embellish everyday life sustainably," she says, convinced that, after difficult times, the best is yet to come for artisans and their trade.
