Who am I?

I'm Fernanda Troncoso, a passionate Chilean artist with a unique life story. I was born in the vibrant land of Brazil, and for nearly two decades, I've been happily married to my best friend, Javier. Together, we are the proud parents of four amazing kids who bring joy and inspiration into our lives every day. One of the things that truly defines me is my love for the arts. I find immense pleasure in creating beautiful pieces of art through ceramics. Ceramics, to me, is a magical and captivating world. The way the clay molds under my fingers, the endless possibilities of shapes and colors, and the deep connection between my creations and nature itself fascinate me. Ceramics has become an integral part of my life, not just as a hobby but as a form of self-expression and a way to capture the beauty that surrounds us. Every piece I craft tells a unique story, and I pour my heart and soul into each creation. The tactile nature of ceramics, the satisfaction of shaping something with my hands, and the alchemy of turning clay into durable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing art resonates with me on a profound level. The act of working with clay has a grounding effect on me, providing a sense of calm and purpose. It aligns with my "paused way of living" that my friends adore and, as a result, has become a defining element of my personal brand. Through my ceramic creations, I aim to share not only my love for the art form but also the serenity it brings to my life. Each piece I craft is a reflection of my journey and the harmonious blend of my Chilean and Brazilian heritage. It's a way for me to celebrate the natural beauty of both of these incredible countries and share it with the world. I look forward to continuing to explore the limitless possibilities of ceramics and the profound connection it fosters between me and the world around me.
