Good evening! Sol & Drake here. We are your hosts, for the Arcilla y Fuego Stars Gala.
This Gala honours the Students of Belén Soto and their creations. So, without further adieu, let us present to you:
Paloma has lovingly created – Bathtub – The sense of humour found in this sweet piece is definitely an extension of the teacher, our mom in Spain.
This beautifully classic expression of Stone Dreams is the inspiration of the talented Iris. She must be part duck.
Fran has executed this very unique work of ceramic aptly titled Sucking Octopus. This artist definitely has their own special take! Of course, as ducks, we don’t find any Octopus in our lake.
Arm is a classic, realistic approach and is realized by Andrea. We especially love the texture achieved on this ceramic. It makes us think of feathers.
Vicky has given us much joy with this whimsical Chinese Dragon. The colours are uplifting, and just look at that adorable face! Of course, Lluvia is cuter.
Plates for Hors d’oeuvres is not only practical, but beautiful! We would be delighted to serve Hors d’oeuvres, or chocolates, on these plates that Francesca has crafted.
Of course Drake and I would have loved for Lluvia to be here with us tonight. However, she is still a very young duck. As we all know, ceramic ducks age very slowly.
Hehehe! Hey mom, letting you know all is well here in Toronto. I will be graduating from Chocolatier College before Christmas. Resa will post pics!

Jeep here, and I am totally exhausted from guiding Resa in making this post. Some of the ceramics were reblogs on Qe, some were on GLAM & one is new. Mostly, it’s those darn ducks tuckering me out!
I’ve waited years to catch them making a move, but they are very clever. They must only fly when I’m sleeping. Resa says if you click on the pic, you will go to Belén’s blog, where you can find all of these posts, and many more wonderful ceramics.
