Presented by Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard at Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

A collection of historical and cultural significant Colombian passages. Events, myths, rituals, and people have been researched and collected to influence a body of work that comes from the absence of it being bestowed. Recreating and reliving through work allows for the reclaiming of the passages and continuing to guide as a contributor.
