Alex Portela

Alex Portela makes whimsical creatures based both real and fantastical out of stoneware clay.  Inspired both by growing up on a small farm and by a continuous stream of sci-fi/fantasy novels, she endeavors to bring about a bit of a return to the child like wonder of discovery in her small figurines.  Each piece is handmade and glazed, no two tiny critters quite the same.
