About me

My curiosity about ceramics started at school, where one day they gave us a piece of clay to make bowls.

The hours passed without me realizing it and every day I made several pieces that I let dry under my bed.

When it came time to decide that I wanted to study, all roads led me to the same place, ceramics. The earth, water, air, fire, the connection with all the elements attracted me so much that I ended up training at the Manises School of Ceramics. There I learned everything that today leads me to be able to learn every day about this special profession. For me a path, a way of life.

My career

In 1997 I studied artistic ceramics at the Manises Ceramics School, where I graduated in 2000. In the same school I received a second prize in Traditional Ceramics in 1999 in the annual competition of works on ceramics, sponsored by the industries of the ceramic sector.

When I finished, I took a 600-hour specialist course at the Bisbal d'Emporda Ceramics School.

I took a course in which I did a study on forms, at the Antonio Vives Experimental Plastic School.

I participated in a Raku workshop and construction of an experimental paper oven with Joan Esquerdo and Chisato Kuroki.

I also participated in the Korean bowl and chawan workshop "The Spirit of the Bowl" with Patricia Varea and Encarna Soler.

And the most recent of "Enamel of Ashes" with Ana Felipe. From all of them I have learned many things and shared unforgettable moments.

I have participated and taught several workshops such as Shapes and Fire, or Raku at the Manises Ceramics School. Wheel workshop with children at the Bisbal Ceramic School, and at the Calpe summer fair. and collaborations with preschool children at the Graüll Public School in Jávea.

The group exhibitions that I have held have been with artists from Gata, also with the Antonio Vives Experimental Plastic School. Later I have made two individual ones, one at the Dénia House of Culture in 2004 and another this year 2021 at Espacio14 Art Gallery also in Gata de Gorgos.

I have shared fairs in the old town of Calpe, Lliber, Gata de Gorgos, Ondara, Jesús Pobre, Jávea, the latter most recently in the summer of 2019.

I participate in 2022 and 2023 in the "Setmana del fang d'Orba and Orbeta".

I worked as director of the hand-decorated section at Vidrios Benigánim, and I have had my own workshop since 2018 in Jávea.

Since January 2021, we have opened a workshop-gallery in Jesús Pobre, Defangcuit, a dream for me.

October 2022 to October 2023, exhibition and online store at Art Gallery 1819 (https://1819.es/artistas/cristina-pedros-vila.
Summer 2023 participation in "The return of the Gargoyles of Altea" with a gargoyle exhibited in the old town and the exhibition of some pieces at the Eberhard Schlotter Foundation in Altea.


My workshop is in Jesus Pobre, Alicante, a wonderful town where I can enjoy the silence and tranquility that help me create my pieces.

The space is dynamic and versatile, it is a workshop, gallery and meeting place to have ceramic experiences, which I schedule every month.

A place with a lot of space and natural light that will captivate you, where you can visit me and enjoy my work.
