Cristina Còrdova is a sculptor and ceramicist living and working in Penland, North Carolina. She grew up in Puerto Rico, where she earned her Bachelors from the University of Puerto Rico in Mayaguez. Cristina then went on to earn her MFA in ceramics from Alfred University in New York. A trained dancer, she brings a sense of movement and musicality into her figurative sculptures. Recently, she has begun working on a larger-than-life scale, and she focuses on creating pieces that walk the line between representation and abstraction.
She often works with her husband, Pablo Soto, who is a glass artist, and also recently collaborated with her brother Arturo, a video artist. She and her husband met at Haystack and she has worked with her brother Arturo at Penland. She talks about spirituality, belonging and art as well as the physicality of sculpture.
