Hello, I am Natalia Araya
I have a strong passion for traditional techniques.
I find both metalwork and enameling fascinating for the richness of possibilities and variations, the subtle hues that sometimes are hard to perceive but express different emotional states of a given moment.
Over time and through my education I have learned to trust and enjoy the process.
I work directly on to the material, basically I think through making, seeking those moments where everything flows and there are no rules, respecting impulses and trusting my instinct.
