Miniature Masterworks: María José Santos

Maria José Santos sees her porcelain figures as a wonderful way to combine her passion for art, historical costumes, and dance. After learning classical techniques for pouring, polishing, baking, and painting porcelain, her first figure was born. She creates figures of men, women, and children from different historical periods, focusing on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as well as characters from classical ballets.

Santos is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017. She will be giving a gallery talk about her work in the T/m collection and the inspiration behind it on September 16 at 1:30pm.
