Krista Nogueras has always been drawn to working with her hands, with a deep relationship with primordial and tactile materials. In an act of self-mapping, she pushes and pulls, tearing the clay in an attempt to create a dialogue between herself and the material. She creates sculpture and installation works that explore human psyche and historicities. Nogueras works predominantly with stoneware, using traditional hand-building techniques as her backbone, while exploration and experimentation are fundamental to her practice. She combines surface and form with stain and glaze painting, and print and mark-making techniques.
