"I dedicate all my efforts and emotion into creating pieces that will resonate in your hearts and minds."The artistry of Salomon Ruiz has been featured in the East Valley Tribune.
"I was born in 1946 in Ancash, Peru. I am a self-taught artist, dedicating myself to ceramics and craftmaking since my youth. I specialize in masks influenced by the Vicus, Moche, and Nazca cultures. I focus largely on the mix of form and color; despite a lack of formal training I have created a unique, personal style. I try to always remember my roots, while also learning from my readings and travels. Everyday I hope to improve myself, and achieve a style that is both gratifying for me and for those who are interested in my work. Now that I know my art will reach many people, I dedicate all my efforts and emotion into creating pieces that will resonate in your hearts and minds. Thank you."
Ruiz uses a unique process in which he first shapes the piece by hand from clay. After firing it at a temperature of 1832°F, he applies bright enamels and gilt. The finished piece is then bathed in a coat of clear enamel, which protects and enhances the vivid and expressive use of color.
