Born in Spain, Farah moved to South Africa in 2004 where she started learning the basic techniques
of pottery. After a couple years with informal lessons from various Cape Town potters she rented
out a space at John Bauer’s studio. Soon she became fascinated with porcelain and startedFarah Hernandez in her studio in Cape Town experimenting with this medium on her own.
Her work also plays with fine textures, partly glazing her pieces and treating the rest of the surface
with soft sandpaper for a smooth yet raw feel.
