"My inspiration for my work comes from things that I see every day and what I see when I am far away. My inclination for simplicity and minimalism in my work is a reflection of my travels throughout the world, especially the Far East." -Lucrecia Waggoner Raised in Mexico City, porcelain and installation artist, Lucrecia Waggoner, recalls her first memory and discovery of ceramics at the age of 7 while visiting and viewing the collections at Mexico's nationally renowned museum, Museo de Antrpologia. As her interest and passion grew for the art of pottery, Waggoner continued her studies and education by enrolling in ceramics courses as she traveled across Europe. Upon her return to the states, she enrolled at Parsons School of Design in New York, where she met her mentor, porcelain artist, Heidi Loewen. Under the guidance of Loewen, Waggoner then formally began her career as a professional artist.
"My inspiration for my work comes from things that I see every day and what I see when I am far away. My inclination for simplicity and minimalism in my work is a reflection of my travels throughout the world, especially the Far East." As a contemporary artist, Waggoner implements and applies various materials in her artwork, including precious metals, such as 22k Gold, Palladium and Copper that add depth and illuminate each piece. With her artistic vision, she creates installations that are intricately mapped in forms and compositions that mimic elements derived from nature and abstract visions of landscapes.
Waggoner's works are shown internationally and acquired in many private, public and corporate collections.
