Nitza Walesca began taking classes at The Clay Studio in 1993, and has continued her ceramic education here since that time. She is a vibrant member of The Clay Studio staff and community through her teaching in our school and for the Claymobile. Walesca also teaches at community arts centers and universities around Philadelphia.
As an artist, Nitza Walesca creates innovative vessels based on traditional forms and adorns them with Taino symbols. Her indigenous Puerto Rican, Taino heritage serves as a strong inspiration. Nitza was introduced to ceramic art by her high school art teacher, and then continued her education through The Clay Studio. She is now a Claymobile Teaching Artist and Community Engagement Assistant at The Clay Studio, as well as a resident of our new neighborhood, South Kensington.
