Muna and I wish you many days of love and friendship!
The rings I posted today have almost sold out. Thank you for your amazing support! I am so happy that my work has found such loving homes.
I recently visited the Taller Experimental de Cerámica, which is a few blocks from my home in Coyoacán.
The studio was founded in the 1960's by stoneware pioneer, Alberto Díaz de Cossío. If you have been to Mexico City, and love great Japanse food, you have probably seen their dinnerware in some of the best restaurants in town.
As well as their utilitarian production, Alberto and his daughter, Adriana, create unique art works which are also for sale in their studio shop. Each year, they celebrate an open house with friends, quesadillas, and mezcal.
I took these pictures of Diego Rivera's home and studio a few years ago. It is one of my favorite buildings in Mexico City. The day I visited, the property had been recently renovated and looked particularly striking.
The two buildings were designed by Juan O'Gorman in the 1930's. The white and orange structure was Diego's, and the smaller blue house was Frida's. They lived and worked here for six years, after their three-year stay in the US.
When Frida's father passed away, she returned to live in her childhood home, the now famous Blue House, in Coyoacán.
Diego painted most of his easel paintings in this studio, and he lived here until his death in 1957.
The property is now a museum. You can see pictures of what it looks like on the inside, on the museum's website.
The best gift life brings me, is the opportunity to create from a space of love and peace. You are part of this gift, which I cherish dearly.
Thank you for the love you send my way, and for encouraging my daily exploration of forms that embody my deepest dreams.
I could not imagine a better path, and I send you my heartfelt gratitude for allowing me to wander and bring treasures from my inner journey.
May life bless you every minute with joy, beauty, and inspiration!

Last night, my dear friends at Fábrica Social celebrated their 10 year anniversary at Espacio Horizontal, in the Colonia Roma.
Dulce Martínez and Daniela Gremion empower 148 women artisans from indigenous communities across Mexico with fair access to market, and design workshops that allow them to explore their creativity and continue to create their beautiful textiles.
It was a treat to see samples from Fábrica's current and past collections, next to the raw materials, natural dyes, and weaving techniques the women use to create them. The best part was meeting the artists in person. Some travelled to Mexico City from Chiapas, Hidalgo and Oaxaca for the first time.
I am a huge fan of this project and I love every piece I own. I hope you get to see their work in person one day, they have two gorgeous shops in Mexico City. In the meantime, check out their Etsy shop and fall in love with their work on Instagram and Facebook.
I just picked up my new business cards from Imprenta Yzta, a family owned business has been around for 45 years. Their customer service is wonderful, and I love the handmade quality of their silkscreened cards.
If you are in Mexico City, you can find them at Felix Parra 80, Col. San José Insurgentes. Their number is 5598-5008.
