Padilla Stoneware Mugs!

Rodolfo Padilla grew up learning his art at his father’s
ceramic studio. In 1981 he won a scholarship to study
ceramic design and materials in Japan and then went on to
continue his studies in Argentina and Italy. Rodolfo Padilla
has presented his work at a number of expositions in
Japan, Europe, South America, Mexico and the United
States. He is an accomplished ceramicist and sculptor.

After mastering the technique of high-fired ceramics,
Padilla's process includes firing the piece at high temperatures,
letting it dry for a couple of days, removing the rough edges,
and then applying a lead-free glaze creating the appearance of it
dripping before firing it again for a shorter period of time.
Currently Padilla divides his daily work time to several studios
where he sculpts, paints and creates new ceramic designs.
He is now devoting his talent to the creation of fine sculptures
in mixed mediums and paintings which are not presented here.
