How It's Made

A whimsical collection of hand-painted terracotta/ceramic sculptures and artifacts. These jovial and vibrant sculptures are Artisan Sculpted from earthenware fired in a large kiln, and individually free-hand-painted. The Devotion Collection is a collaborative labor of love between Rafael Pineda and Zenwaro. All of the signature designs in this collection have a story of “Devotion” that inspired their creation. Whether it be Devoted to love, the Devotion of a furry companion, or the devotion towards a belief, a craft, a heritage, a lifestyle, and everything in-between. One of Rafeal’s devotions is using his hands to transform raw earth into original sculptural art with meaning. Many pieces are fused with metal wires allowing the ceramic accents (wings, thorns, flower, figures) to be manipulated. A level of thoughtful artistry that invites you to adjust/manipulate/maneuver the sculptural elements to your liking.

Every sculpture, every figure is individually hand-molded from raw earth then fired within a large traditional red brick kiln that is heated naturally by wood. Every sculpture is hand painted in a variety of colors. Some colors are intensely vibrant, others more earthly in tone, some are embellished with bright silver and gold metallic paints. After the illustrative process pieces are loaded back into the kiln for the final bake. Forever bonding the colors with the clay. The Devotion collection is a true combination of old world craftsmanship & whimsical artistry.

Artisan Story

Zenwaro's collaborative relationship with the artist and master ceramicist, Rafael Piñeda, began 12 years ago. His experience with terracotta began in early adolescence, under the tutelage of one uncle who was an award-winning sculptural artist also working with terracotta clay. Rafael’s immediate family does not lack talented ceramicists, both uncles and one aunt are accomplished ceramic artists. The uncle that Rafael began his early age apprenticeship with was visually impaired and years later became completely blind. But the lack of sight never halted Luis's devotion for sculpting, rather he continued working until his death in 2019. Rafael cures/bakes all of his pieces in a wood-fired kiln, he has resisted the urge to convert his production model to a gas-fired, modern kiln. Rafael’s creativity observes the "traditional way" where he can control every aspect of the firing process.
