Maryfrances Carter creates functional art for a beautiful life. Each of her pieces is formed and painted in a blue and white style inspired by the patterns and textures of embroidery, history, and flowers. While her focus is mainly blue and white ceramics, she’s thrilled to work alongside Mariana to create vibrant art in a calm and inspirational setting, all while becoming familiar with the unique beauty of Mexican pottery.
"In Partnership with Hotel Amparo, Hibiscus Linens X Maryfrances Carter present the beauty and craft of functional art. Exploring the rich history of Talavera and other ceramic practices, we’ll draw inspiration from the local colors, lines, patterns, and textures. These elements are integral to both Mexican pottery and Maryfrances' work and we want to share them with you! From sketchbook drafts to surface design, this retreat aims to inspire you to create your own unique pieces. You’re invited to learn, to experience the culture, and to be inspired! Each day there will be a relaxing workshop focusing on the aspects of line, color, texture, and pattern. We hope to create with you soon!"
