Gerardo Ortega has been creating these whimsical figures of clay for over 20 years. He is constantly looking for ways to innovate and develop new products with a surrealistic feel. His mission is to be true to the art, to expand the imagination and to contribute socially to the community where he lives. He provides opportunities for apprenticeships to young people who want to learn his craft. Many have tried to copy his style, but Gerardo is the original creator of these treasured pieces. His work can be found in museums throughout the region. He resides in the state of Jalisco, Mexico.
