Love Letters to My Mexican Heritage
This series of indigo works is a collaboration between ceramicist and fiber artist, Nicole McLaughlin, and Monica Curiel. These works search to create a connection with their Mexican heritage by using materials rooted in the feminine and masculine processes of their ancestors. They elevate each work by the union of their identities, commonalities in their personal histories, and concepts within their artistic practices. Through the integration of fiber and plaster woven together with indigo, they write these love letters to their Mexican heritage.
