La Casa Hispanica Hosts Ceramic Skull Presentation
November 9, 2015
A ceramic skull created by Stow, Ohio, artist Cris Hertle sits on a table in La Casa Hispanica (Harvey House). Hertle spoke about her ceramic skull art and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a two-day festival that originated in Mexico, at La Casa Hispanica on October 30. A native of Mexico, Hertle experienced Día de los Muertos festival celebrations first hand before coming to the United States in 1999. “The reason why I create ceramic skulls is because, at the end when we are no longer in this life, the bone remains,” Hertle says.
