Christian Escajadillo is a Peruvian ceramics artist and designer that creates collectable pieces to generate reactions to break the everyday. His focus is on building bridges between contemporary aesthetics and pre-Columbian images of Peru, from an organic and geometric expression. His passion for design led him to create works that explore his roots and reflect his fascination with the pre-Hispanic world of South America.
Each one of his pieces is meticulously hand-modeled with the aim of achieving tension, movement and balance. His material is stoneware, mixed with inclusions and pigments, burned at a high temperature of 1250° C with an oxidizing atmosphere. The clay becoming stone again through the ceramic.
Christian’s work has been presented in Montreal, Brussels, Boston, Frankfurt and Lima.
