Martha Petrona Jimenez's sculpture in exhibition 50 Women: A Celebration of Women's Contribution to Ceramics

Camaguey- A work of the serie "Sorcery of the fish", authored by prominent ceramist Martha Petrona Jimenez is part of the exhibition "50 Women: A Celebration of Women's Contribution to Ceramics", open to the public at the American Jazz Museum, Kansas city, in the United States.

The piece was conceived in the technique of glazed ceramic. The social network facebook, where this work was published, accompanied that showpiece with that suggestive text: "Mother, from your belly was born and I grew up in your chest, to fly from your arms, and meet you in an everlasting embrace".

The co-curators of the exhibition were Alex Kraft and Anthony Merino. Alex Kraft, during her ten-year career, has built an extensive network within the field of ceramics; she has also made six residences and offered lectures on ceramics on 18 occasions.

Meanwhile, Anthony Merino is one of the most important art critics in the United States. He has published over a hundred articles about ceramics and lectured worldwide.
