Daniela Solis graduated as a sculptor from the University of Veracruz. She lives and works in the Barrio de la Luz, in Puebla, where she leads the workshop Sol-Cerámica. In 2009, she assisted the artist Jan Hendrix. From 2010 to 2012, she was an apprentice of the much known ceramist Gustavo Pérez. In 2012, the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA) sponsored her research called Tradición mexicana (Mexican Tradition). In 2013, she founded and directed the ceramic workshop La Ceiba Gráfica in Veracruz, and she also worked with the artist Brigitte Penicaud in Limoge, France.
Tradición mexicana is a collection of utilitarian ceramic vessels in which the artist has created a visual and tactile narrative about the culinary syncretism in Mexico. In this collection, the
creole plant species–used to season food since Pre-Hispanic times– have been printed as fossils over the wet clay. Each piece is unique, and has been hand-sculpted and heated to a temperature of 2180° C.
The production of Sol-Cerámica is the result of a deep research of the techniques and the experimentation with local materials. Several kinds of clay from Pachuca, Veracruz and Puebla were used for the elaboration of high-temperature glazes, traditionally used by potters for the creation of low-temperature comales (hotplates), flowerpots and bricks. It was also used volcanic sand from the Pico de Orizaba and hashes from the Popocatepetl, so she could create several glazes and textures in the porcelain.
