Back in Peru, she taught ceramics at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, and participated in projects granted by the government, working with local artisans to design ceramic pieces. In 2011, Sofia opened her own ceramics studio in Peru. She focused on designing functional pieces because they provide a perfect balance between intimacy and accessibility as a form of art. Sofia’s work is inspired by Asian culture which led her to understand daily pottery as a joy that gathers people together and celebrates life.
