Anabelí Díaz was born in 1975 in Mexico City. She lives in Sweden since the mid 90’s.
She studied Ceramics at the School of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg and at Capellagården in Öland, Sweden. She lived near the kiln park of Nääs, where she specialized in wood-fired ceramics. After graduating, she started a ceramics workshop in a rehabilitation center for disabled people (Piña Palmera) 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 ceramic has always been a source of inspiration to me. It has a lot in common with prehistoric ceramic, which is another important source that I always return to, says Anabelí.
