Pilar Arango immigrated to the United States from Colombia by way of New Orleans and then Houston. In Bogota she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from La Universidad de Los Andes and specialized in printmaking. In New Orleans she took ceramics courses at Tulane University and fell in love with pottery and its possibilities. Most of the time Pilar works with the wheel and sometimes mixes hand building. For decoration techniques she enjoys working with sgraffito, underglaze slips, and has begun using print making techniques. Most of the time she makes and mixes her own slips and glazes. She also works with porcelain and stoneware at cone 6. Pilar has been working in ceramics for over 20 years, and looks forward to continuing to work, learn and create through this wonderful medium.
