Hola amigos! I am Rasec, my pronouns are she/her. I’m extremely happy to be part of this creative team of ceramics teachers and I can’t wait to share my knowledge and love of ceramics!
I fell in love with clay the first time I sat at the wheel! I centered my clay and I made my first bowl! I will never forget my professor’s words, he said: “Wow! You are a natural!”. I can remember perfectly the feeling that making that first bowl gave me, because I feel the same way every time I make something on the wheel … incredibly happy!
I’m a former business executive who holds a Master degree in Marketing. I discovered my inner artistic abilities after taking various PCC Art classes (drawing, metal, sculpture, ceramics). I then concentrated on ceramics and have completed the full ceramics curriculum at PCC. During this time, I gained skills in handbuilding, sculpture and wheel throwing.
My personality is full of positive energy, and enthusiasm! Iam extroverted… and hopefully: fun! I’m very passionate about sharing my love of ceramics. I am looking forward to engaging my students in the useful and exciting skill of throwing on the wheel, especially that magical moment, when a cylinder turns into…ANYTHING IMAGINABLE! :)
I am a potter who enjoys making cups that are elegant, lightweight, and comfortable in the hand with interesting outside textures. I also like making bowls with very smooth interiors and curvy voluminous vessels.I enjoy experimenting with adding unique features by altering my wheel thrown pieces. My work is primarily functional, sometimes with sculptural aspects and a few individual sculptures.
Outside of ceramics, I am very proud to be LATIN! I love to read, to cook and to share awesome dishes with friends and family! I am also enjoying the new puppy in my life, Sabia. She is a very smart one and is well behaved and learning many new commands. She aspires to be an agility expert (Who doesn’t speak well about their pets?).
