Perla Valtierra

Originally from Chihuahua, Mexico, Perla Valtierra is the founder and designer of the brand since its conception in 2010. Led by Perla's creative vision, the brand produces high-end, handcrafted ceramics in Mexico.

Valtierra sometimes describes herself as a ceramist apprentice, more than a designer. She has practiced traditional pottery in various communities of Mexico, among them in Zacatecas, Guanajuato, and Oaxaca. The need to explore other techniques and cultures also has led her to extend her practice and research in Japan, Belgium, and France. Today, she continues experimenting in Mexico City where she resides.
