Magdalena Pedro Martínez is both a ceramist and a doctor. Married to another doctor, she and her husband reside in the state of Oaxaca and are available for house calls, but most of their time is spent on barro negro (black clay) artwork. 

Magdalena specializes in female figures (monas) dressed in the traditional costumes of the seven regions of her state. She takes this work as her contribution to the preservation of the culture of her beloved ancestors. In her work, she uses the shiny black and matte surfaces, creating the contrasts that capture the rich details in the figures. 

For the Day of the Dead celebrations, she also makes "Catrinas", arrogant skeletal figures dressed in elegant clothing . A museum in Mexico City asked her for a collection of large female figures for their exhibition. 

The first step in creating one of her figures is to make the face. The torso is formed separately and the clothes, arms and face are added later, along with the additional details. When the piece is completely dry, it is polished with quartz and then baked overnight.
