I want to introduce to you, this couple. I have known them personally for more than I can remember! Consta & Nandy have been my mom's friends for quite some time. Constanza Chabur and Hernando Hoyos, partnered up in life and in passion for art. They attitude radiates such love you can feel it in every piece they produce. Both have been creating pieces individually and together in Colombia over 18 years.
Every piece is unique and will never be replicated.
This technique can be used for different decorative purposes; such as, kitchen and bath backsplash, shower walls and floors, floors, swimming pools, benches, tables, planters, etc,,,
"My work is inspired by the "Opus Tessellatum" ancient Greek technique for fragile and fragmentary mosaic, created from ceramic pieces, as introduced by the Catalan aesthetic tradition. In the context of my creations, I have been interested in fusing this technique with clay supports produced in some towns in Colombia, with a ceramic tradition, such as Raquira, Boyacá.
I create my own color palettes, baking the tiles that I use to create and layer my pieces. The gradation and the geometrization of the designs, arranged in the manner of a puzzle, has allowed me to inscribe a personal imprint, which brings coherence and identity to the creations of the workshop. Each piece condenses aesthetic values, technical developments and sensory experiences that are culturally transmissible and go beyond the mere utilitarian character to which objects could be reduced."
