Communicating through ceramics

  • • Déborah enjoys contact and exchanges with people
  • • Time, patience and care are the key ingredients of her work
  • • Her first professional piece was a teapot

Journalist turned ceramicist, Déborah Abizanda Cañizares decided ten years ago to transform her childhood pastime into a profession. After completing formal courses, she trained as an apprentice before opening her own workshop in Madrid four years ago, in the Lavapies district, where she sells her own creations, besides hosting training courses. She generally makes porcelain items and one-of-a-kind pieces, modelling and sculpting, inspired by the Spanish tradition of ceramics, taking pride in it, while expressing through her work a contemporary outlook. She sources her raw material, clay mainly in the Valencia area which creates a deep connection with her home country. Her hands are her tools, to slowly create objects with patience and passion, and her vision is to make something tangible, in contrast to the speed of technology.
