Originally trained as an architect, Sandra Torres eventually transferred her creative outlet into clay work. Her ceramic education started under the wing of a master ceramist at an experimental studio in Mexico City. She then continued hands on learning in Southern California in three different studios. Her ceramic education was augmented by clay devoted traveling to China, Belgium and Hungary.
Porcelain, in the thinnest of its expressions, demonstrates a life of its own, moving to the heat of the firing and resulting in an imprint of its own memory. Sandra has chosen a process that allows her to create contrast of color while maintaining the soft bare feeling and translucency of the porcelain, delicate to the sight, yet strong to the touch.
