Meet the Maker: Adriana Lemus

Meet the Maker: Adriana Lemus

Adriana Lemus is the ceramic artist behind the signature pottery collections featured at each Nomada hotel. From latte mugs to decorative vases, Adriana lovingly refers to her creations as “functional art” - and they’re all handmade in small batches at her backyard studio in San Luis Obispo. 
Some pieces are wheel thrown and others are made by coil building and slab construction.
“A challenge as well a joy within my medium of ceramics is that it is truly a labor of love. The amount of time and energy that goes into creating one piece is all part of the process. When you buy handmade pottery, you hold a small piece of the artist – the energy of the artist is infused into their art.”
