Guadalupe García Rios has been making pottery for more than half of her life. Her specialty is ceramic alta temperature (high temperature/high-fire ceramics). Fired at over 1250 degrees centigrade and lead-free, Guadalupe's designs and creativity are unparalleled.

Guadalupe is rapidly gaining recognition as a high quality producer of ceramics and is much sought after. Her designs are inspired in part by pre-Hispanic designs but also from the countryside and nature. The high volcanic peaks, lakes, wildlife and other environmental elements also figure prominently in her expressions of this region. She feels as she creates each piece, she is giving back to the earth that makes her art possible.

She lives in the village of Tzintzuntzan near Lake Pátzcuaro, one of many Michoacán towns continuing a living tradition: alfarería (pottery making). Clay is abundant in the hills and many Purépecha dedicate their lives to creating both utilitarian and artistic pottery.

Guadalupe creates her lead-free, high-fire glazed ceramics and decorates with skillfully designed adaptations of ancient Purépecha symbols. Her extremely complex three-dimensional work is crafted on a non-electric wheel and fired in a gas kiln. Her more modern, but extremely time-consuming approach differs markedly from the old-style approach of other ceramicists.
