Los Angeles, California
Artist Dora De Larios grew up in the Temple Street district near Silver Lake, California, which was then a neighborhood of Mexican and Nisei (second-generation) Japanese families. In college she studied with some of the foremost clay artists and instructors at the University of Southern California, graduating with degrees in ceramics and sculpture. Her clean lines and distinctive glazes moved clay - traditionally considered to be a "craft" medium - further into the realm of art.
