The Beauty behind Cristina Córdova sculpture art. These contemporary sculptures made of ceramic by Cristina Córdova will make your day. The artist originally from Puerto Rico studied engineer, but she decided to pursue a career in contemporary art.
Her parents were physicians, so she thought that notion of career was the only one, but then when she was doing engineering school, she saw that was not her disposition and found out space for creativity.
She met an artist called Jaime Suarez. The way that he taught clay was a big influence. He was so open and cathartic in his treatment. He was doing these big sculptures, but he was also doing just very intimate parts, and I think that was Cristina Cordova first connection with the material.

Cristina Cordova has some mechanical tools for turning big modern sculptures around. In the past years she started to used the computer and the digital world so most of her rendering starts with a set of photographs of the sculpture design that takes views of the model in the round, and then she picks a form. She prints out the front and the sides of the model in sections and then tape them together at scale.
