Conceived by Leonardo Rodriguez, developed in the Fine Arts Ceramic Center, “Fine arts on the plate” presents a group of artists who mostly work on canvas and take their work to ceramics with the aim of preserving and educating the valuable practice to new generations.

The word “ceramic” comes from the ancient Greek “keramos” meaning “potter soil” a clay made of inorganic composite material. The clay is very malleable in its natural form but becomes stiff after drying or firing. The technique of firing clay began with utilitarian objects for prehistoric society. Over the years, people learned that clay could change color depending on the mixtures of different oxides and that it could be coated (glazed) and decorated. Soon, crude pottery was transformed into more substantial objects of varied shapes and suitable for painting. 

Each plate on this exhibition displays a wide range of styles, from figurative to abstract to realistic to surreal, and more. There are intuitive designs, portraits, and geometric puzzles, strange characters, and fantasies, Just as one would expect from a very diverse group of artists – each one is unique, provocative, and extremely well crafted.
