Episode Six: Surviving + Thriving with Eliana Rodriguez
Eliana Rodriguez works at the intersection of ceramics and printmaking, two mediums with weighty connections to indigenous practice and colonial oppression. Through her use of brown clay, the symbols she employs and her deeply informed approach to her art, she creates work that ties back to her own heritage while creating opportunities for others to see themselves in her art.  This is the fourth installment in a series of episodes in which ceramics artists discuss the ways that bodies, their own or our cultural perceptions of them, impact their work - and how their work is effected by the bodies of those that view or use them.
