Anabelí Díaz was born in 1975 in Mexico City. Now she lives in Sweden since the mid 90’s. She studied Ceramics at the Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg and at Capellagården in Öland, Sweden.
After graduating, she started a ceramic workshop in Piña Palmera, they work with the processes of rehabilitation and social inclusion for people with disabilities, most of them indigenous in the South of Mexico. In the rehabilitation center, she used clay from the riverside and built a wood-fired kiln and a wheel run by foot-power.
– Mexican ceramics has always been a source of inspiration to me. Neolithic ceramics is another important source that I always return to, says Anabelí.
