Who is Turiya Gross Ceramics?
Born from an American father and a Mexican mother who were/are musicians, Turiya’s need to create with her hands began at a young age. Playing the piano, drawing trees in parks in a then tiny town in Mexico to whimsical imaginary portraits ( which have resurfaced most recently in her clay spoons) to name a few of her interests . She also loved experimenting with different fabrics to weave into scarves and making clothes . Her path in clay began in 2001 in The Wine Country Region of the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York where she attended a Craft Community: The Rochester Folk Art Guild.
Turiya Gross is a multidisciplinary artist based in the Bay Area. Her aesthetic is most identified by the white and blues of Turkish antiques and Mexican folk brushwork.
