Ross De La Garza

Ross De La Garza Texas Hill Country Artist.Ross De La Garza, a seventh generation Texan who grew up along the Texas coastline in Corpus Christi began to create these whimsical fish over 20 years ago. His passion for his craft and the ever growing family of art patrons, keeps him reaching into the kiln with an unending smile on his face and in his heart.

All my creations are whimsical, hand built and Raku fired. Fish, teapots, and vessels are the dominant motif in my work with an emphasis in texture and bright colors. Growing up on the Texas Gulf Coast, the warm gulf waters, nature and my background in Geological Sciences have influenced my work. I incorporate fossiliferous limestone, copper, fused glass and fishing lures to delight all who are introduced to my art.
