Cuarto Suspiro is a workshop for the design and production of contemporary ceramics. Their production is characterized by utilitarian and artistic pieces of high quality with innovative designs and techniques in high temperature ceramics. The workshop is located in the town of San Andrés Huayapam, Oaxaca, a magical place 25 minutes from the center of the city of Oaxaca.

The workshop was founded by Brian Corres and Natalia Bolaños, both graduates of the school of crafts. Together, they collaborate on techniques and styles to achieve unique pieces of great beauty. They have won several prizes — First Place in 2017 at the 2nd National Meeting of Young Artisans and Designers of Mexico. In 2018, they were selected by the national youth institute of Mexico City to collaborate with a special program of the Institute for Creative Exchange (ICE) in Toronto, Canada.

Their process starts from the mixing the clay — they use local, national and imported clay to obtain a mixture that supports the firing temperature and is maleable enough to be able to model it. Next, they go to the production mode. All of the items are handmade either with a potter’s wheel and or molding by hand.

Once the pieces ready, they are dried and undergo the first firing called sancocho at 850ºc. Next, the pieces are glazed — glazes can contain minerals, ashes, metal oxides such as copper, iron, cobalt and manganese — but all glazes are lead-free. For the final firing, a gas kiln is used and fired at 1250ºc.
