Andrea Román

Mexican industrial designer graduated from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. From 2009 to 2010 she studied at the School of Fine Arts of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

 

She specialized in ceramic slip casting and since 2014 she has been a resident ceramic designer at Turning Earth Ceramic Studio in London. In recent years her work has focused on representing elements such as stone, sand and soil through handmade ceramic. She incorporates glaze merely as a functional element in her pieces, trying to keep it as subtle and minimal as possible in order to highlight the qualities of the clay bodies she works with.

 

In 2016, she founded Ceramics 274, a collective of ceramic designers seeking innovative ways to connect people with ceramics.

 

Her work has been exhibited at the London Design Festival, the Mexican Design Open and the Annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York, among others. In 2013 she was awarded with an Honorable Mention at the 6th Utilitarian Ceramics Biennial at Museo Franz Mayer in Mexico City. Her latest pieces have been featured in books and magazines internationally. She currently lives and works in London.
