Twin Cities Voices, where we celebrate the locals that make our city so charming

Guillermo Guardia's ceramic work is so stunning that it can be hard to believe it began as a lump of clay. Originally from Peru, Guillermo recently moved to the Twin Cities after studying and living in North Dakota, and hopes to find a broader ceramic community here. He uses his culture and childhood as an inspiration for many of his pieces, as well as politics, religion, and pop culture. In this interview Guillermo discusses his strongest series "Baby Devils", what his journey as a ceramic artist has been, and what why having a sense of "home" is important in his work.
