About the creation ” BLOSSOM”It’s my pleasure to be part of Terracotta Art Collaboration hosted by Dr. RB Sudha among eminent artists around the world.
This creation, BLOSSOM defines the very existence of a woman. She is the reason of the blooming mankind around. Terracota is literally, any kind of fired clay turned into a structural form—made from fairly coarse, porous clay that when fired assumes a colour ranging from dull ochre to red and usually is left unglazed. Tried to merge this beautiful clay art and inspired with the fecund selfless love that a woman spreads and created BLOSSOM .

I graduated in pastry and bakery three years ago, with that I began my adventure in the world of cake and design, which led me to continue my studies in cake design and art, I am finally in the final stretch of my studies in design of cake.
which was a great fascinating experience in the journey of flavor and art in a single cake, which led me to meet great artists in this field who I admire and try to follow the steps, so I keep learning and making my own designs.
My inspiration is on the ceramics of the Nazca-Peru culture, which are made of polychrome terracotta, with figures of heads placed upside down, bird men, felines. they are approximately between the years 200 to 700 AD.
