Hiram Rosado Poupart decided that he wanted to work in clay.  He had a driving need to explore, passionately, the possibilities of the medium within the realities of his life. The decision could not be delayed: it was a matter of survival, of happiness, and of instinctive aesthetic expression. After graduating from Law School, he gave up his degree in order to go back to the art of Ceramics, becoming a full time ceramist.

His own work is proof of this connection. Although based on his profound love of Nature, the organic forms he produces take off on their own and are entirely original.  These forms, in large or small format, are an exploration that goes beyond what he observes, even in the microscopic realms, and become purely innovative. Working exclusively in the traditional “rope”  technique,  you can see and feel the speed with which he manipulates it, infusing life into the pieces. There is a “rhythmic vertigo” in them that throws the viewer back, through time and history, to the roots of the medium, to the origins.

 

“El medio ceramico es demasiado

apasionado para ignorario. Toda la vida lo he amado; y hasta la muerte me llevará al principio del barro.”

Ceramista puertorriqueño, natural de San Juan.  Se acercó a la cerámica luego de terminar estudios de abogacía.  Descubrió en el proceso que esa era su verdadera vocación.   Su trabajo se caracteriza por las formas orgánicas y el uso casi exclusivo de la técnica de soga.

Se ha desempeñado como professor de cerámica de niños y adolescentes en la Liga de Arte de San Juan por varios años.  También ha dado cursos en los hogares CREA, el Centro Cultural de Bayamón, el Hogar de Niñas Maltratadas - Rafaela Ibarra, el programa Enlace del Departamento de Educación, la Compañia de Fomento Recreativo y la Casa Candina.
