PORTRAIT BY MERCEDES JELINEK

Agustina is an artist and designer with a passion for the natural world. She is originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina and was raised in Germany and the United States.

She recieved her Bachelor’s of Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia in Athens in spring 2011. She has been as a cook, traveler, potter, and landscape designer. Her passions include native plants, ecological design, local organic foods, languages, and movement.

I pursue anything that strengthens our connection to the earth and to each other. We don’t just observe the world, we are in a reciprocal relationship with it. 

Agustina has practiced in various ceramic open studios and attended the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. At Penland she was inspired by a wonderful community of people committed to lives as artists and craftspeople.
