Illustrated pottery

  • • Susana creates tableware and decorative pieces such as lamps and vases
  • • She works mainly with earthenware, but also with porcelain and terracotta
  • • Her pieces are unique with captivating illustrations and designs

Susana García Gómez studied Fine Arts at the University of Castilla La Mancha in Cuenca and Ceramics at the School of Ceramics in Madrid. She also learned the craft from the many master artisans who crossed her path. Susana always felt the need to work with her hands and create. Around 2013 she set up her workshop in the countryside, on the outskirts of Madrid. "I started by occupying part of the garage of my house. In two years, I had occupied all the space," she recalls. Today her workshop, Favorito Studio, is her temple, the place where she spends most of her time experimenting with different techniques, materials and designs to create playful and very personal ceramics. “I live surrounded by nature and that influences my work a lot,” she says. “It is a very intimate craft. It reflects my expressiveness, my joys, and my imperfections”.
