Meet Claudia Canas
Born in Lisbon in 1971 she lives in Caldas da Rainha since 1990. Hes career in the ceramics world began in 1991 when she learned how to work on the potter's wheel with Master João Reis and the Master Armindo Reis. In 1994 she sets up her studio in Caldas da Rainha, where has been developing her works in research and constant experimentation. In 2013 she graduated in Fine Arts at the School of Arts and Design, Caldas da Rainha. The plasticity of ceramics pastes, its transformation processes and the fact that these processes are involved with the four elements, the earth, the water, the fire and the air, are central issues in this work process leading her by an endless creative process. In her ceramic works she uses, largely, from raw materials to stoneware paste ''chamotada'', porcelain and the glazed contrasting with the natural color of the paste. Incorporates other materials in her works as iron, wood, rope, the mirrored aluminum and stainless steel. Along her path she has participated in several exhibitions and collaborated with several galleries. It is represented in national and international private collections.
