Serapio Medrano is a Mexican ceramicist living in Tonala near Guadalajara.
Serapio is the son of Candelario Medrano, a famous cermacist from the 1970’s. Candelario was a pipe-maker who began making sculptures out of the clay he was using.
These pictures of his dad hang in his room.
Two of his sculptures in the El Nual Gallery at Casa De Los Flores Bed and Breakfast. Some of Serapio’s subjects are the nagual. A nagual is a shapeshifter person who can transform into a devil or a strange creature.
