Gerda Gruber (Bratislava, Austria 1940) arrived in Mexico in 1975; here she found great potential for the development of clay sculpture as contemporary art. She founded the Clay Sculpture Workshop at the National School of Plastic Arts, and after a decade of training generations of sculptors in central and northern Mexico, she moved to Yucatan in 1988. Over time, Gerda Gruber´s artistic language -using materials such as metal, glass, clay, porcelain, fiber, wood, wax and bamboo- attest to the evolution of her deep contemplation of the plant world in Yucatán.

Gerda Gruber’s sculptural harmony is the result of a life dedicated to artistic production and teaching, without clinging to a unique form of exchange or didactic method.
