Hi Lorena, your work is stunning!!! I love skulls and Mexican folk art, so I love anything dia de los muertos! Thank you so much for the chance!ReplyDelete
Im a new fan of your work wich I discovered thanks to a puertorican artist who post your blog on FB (Alejandra Baiz).
Well, the thing I like the most about the Dia de los Muertos tradition is the skeletons always in colors. Specially women skeletons and their dresses and of course, with flowers everywhere :)
About your work, what can I say? As I said, Im a new fan, so Im right on the way of discovering, but let me tell you something, I loooooooooooooooooooooove the bird ring!!!!!! :D (muchas muchas veces)
I really love your 'give away' and yes, I will love it much more if Im the lucky one to win it :)
Lorena, you ask for contact info....I suscribed to your blog but I also let you my personal blog (both in spanish)...I dont think there is something more personal than my blog to give you...
Have a great week and I hope your creativity never ends,
ps-I posted the contest info on my blog :http://milaysha.espacioblog.com/post/2010/10/28/regalito-regalito
I too am a fan of your work. I have long had a love affair with Mexican folk art. My house is full of mask, carving, Day of the Day art, and ceramics. It's in my blood. I too will share your contest on my blog.ReplyDelete
Will love to wear something made by you. Will be an honor.ReplyDelete
Oh! Anuncié tu sorteo en mi blog: http://normasclay.blogspot.comReplyDelete
Hola Lorena, no especificaste idioma y lo mio es el espanol. Tu trabajo?ReplyDelete
excelente y me da muchisimo orgullo que seas mexicana y que hayas llegado hasta donde estas. Sobre la tradicion del Dia de Muertos, me parece una de las mas lindas, por su colorido, ademas de que deja ver un poco como el mexicano ve a la muerte. Yo posteare la foto en Facebook.
I want to win! I can't wait to attend your class next week-end. I plan on being the teacher's pat and favorite.
Being a Mexican American I feel a cultural connection to your work. It warms my heart as well as celebrates our rich Mexican roots.

I fell in love with your skulls last year when I saw them at the SAY SI’s festival. You and your student created some great pieces and this year I think they are even better. I have posted this link at my shop and I have told all my customers about what you do.ReplyDelete
See you soon.
I am a follower and I too love your work! I love Mexican folk art and dance, it is just so beautiful to me.ReplyDelete
Although my mom is from Mexico, I didn't learn about Day of the Dead until my early 20s from a college friend who made the little life scenes with the little skeletons. It is a fascinating tradition and have grown to love all the art associated with it. It is wonderful that you are keeping it alive with your work.
I have been your fan for quite a while :-)!!!!!ReplyDelete
Pick me! Pick Me! You know I'll be your bestest Friend! Your talent deserves to be shown everywhere!

I have been following your blog for a while now, and always enjoy seeing what you are making. I have always been drawn to Mexican folk art, and love how that tradition colors your work. Is the skull in the necklace copper metal clay, or stamped sheet copper? :)
I also posted the link to this post on my FB jewelry page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pippi-Jewelry/47131944632?ref=ts) and my personal FB profile.
Best of luck everyone!

I really like this necklace. I'm fascinated with Day of the Dead stuff, shrines, and milagros. I own a shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe that I bought in Mexico.ReplyDelete
this is soo cool..would love to win this...displaying on my fb wall too :o)ReplyDelete
This piece is so beautiful! I would love to win it, so please enter me! I love the day of the dead traditions. I find it such a loving tribute to those who have gone before us. And a wonderful way to celebrate LIFE! My cousins are 1/2 Mexican (and 1/2 Italian) and we always had pinatas at our Easter Celebrations. We never did the dia de los muertos though, so I've adopted that in my adulthood. :) Your work is beautiful and I'm glad I found it through another posting on FB! I especially love your Tree of Life!ReplyDelete
Hugs, Tamara Comerford (on facebook with that name) s comerford @ comcast (dot) net.

My attention to your blog got drawn by a FB friend's post. I love colorful jewelry and I happened to be in San Antonio only 2 months ago!. Wish I had known about your work earlier, I would have definitely asked you to show me more!. I'm going to post the link to my FB page for eveyone to see. Since I've started to design jewelry myself, I appreciate the work of others even more - especially when it sings to me.ReplyDelete

Your work is fabuloso, my friend! Hola from Oaxaca--I leave tomorrow!ReplyDelete
Hi Lorena! The necklace is beautiful!ReplyDelete
I really like the Dia de los Muertos celebration. Our family never had the tradition of going to the cemetery, mostly because everyone's buried somewhere else, but I adopted variations of it for my family. Usually there's an ofrenda with photos. And I sometimes do a virtual one in a post on my blog. This year I was out of town helping my parents with surgery and storm damage so I didn't get it done. I will probably get a virtual one done, but late.
Some years ago I took the concept and did a memorial service at our local UU fellowship. People would talk about loved ones who had passed (even pets) and there would be candles lit. It was so popular and moving that it became a regular event and was scheduled on the Sunday closest to the Day of the Dead.
Gorgeous as always Lorena! You need to come to Tucson for the all souls procession someday! it's this Sunday- very cool, and Dia deReplyDelete
I love watching your creations develop!

beautiful work!! (as usual!!)ReplyDelete
I absolutely love your art!! I didn't know much about Dia de los Muertos before I started following your blog and Facebook posts but it's been fun and interesting to get to know more about it. I think it's such a celebration of life to explore other cultural traditions and you're able to translate your love of that into your beautiful and colorful art for all of us to share. I've also posted this to my Facebook page
