Persona History:

Madalena de Orozco, Spanish born, accepted a citizenship agreement from the Italian hamlet of Soana in the Duchy of Tuscany. Soana wanted to compete with nearby Orvieto in pottery and maiolica production, so they offered Madalena a monopoly on the region for production of pottery for several royal families and upper level merchants.

Madalena had spent most of her childhood as an apprentice in a lusterware pottery center in Valencia, Spain.

She risked her life to accept the appointment, taking with her the knowledge of lustre and finicky red pigments; she would never sail to Spanish shores again, lest she be tried for treason.


Ceramics: Namely maiolica. I also teach how to throw bowls, cups and plates.

Fiber arts: I have worked in all things fiber. "From sheep to shawl," as they say. I've taught classes in dyeing, spindle and wheel spinning, Tablet weaving, rigid heddle, multi-harness looms, embroidery, and sprang. I enjoy knitting in my free time and absolutely love dyeing and spinning.
