Clay a happy medium
CREATING beautiful things is not just a job but a source of happiness for ceramic artist Belen Berganza.
Ms Berganza who will showcase her wares at the Made on the Left markets said she began her business after she finished university.
“I always wanted to be an artist, I was actually going to go into restoration but my mum suggested I try ceramics,” she said.
“I tried it and I loved it. It’s much better than fixing other
people’s work. You can make anything from clay.”
The Fremantle resident who now teaches said her inspiration comes from nature.
“Sometimes you get inspiration from a client other times it’s from the patterns of nature,” she said.
“I hope to continue teaching into the future, helping someone to express themselves in art is an absolute pleasure.”
Made on the Left markets will be returning to Fremantle for the 10th year in a row.
Ms Berganza who has been a stall owner will be returning for the markets this year.
The markets feature handmade clothing, mosaic tiles, original canvas prints and jewellery.
