Vivian Rodriguez was born and raised in Costa Rica, migrating to New Zealand in the early 1990s. She believes that working with clay is a way of exploring different ways of communicating ideas of belonging and cultural heritage. Of all domestic wares the “cup” is perhaps the most utilised of all ceramic vessels. These objects, have histories of their own and are welcomed into peoples’ private spheres. It is this symbiotic relationship that inspires Vivian to explore and experiment with different ways to create functional and beautiful art forms.
