Ivonne speaks about her work:
"I would tend to say that my first love affair was with a crayon and a white piece of paper.  Ever since I can remember, picking up a pen, crayon or colored pencil and letting my brain waver with thoughts superf

Yogi Box

 Wood box, carved and painted. Yogi boxes came after a weekly yoga class that I started taking about six months ago.  I was so inspired by the way the instructor closes the class, and a big part of it is the tonal quality of her voice, she always states “there is nothing to add, nothing to substract, you are perfect”.  What a mantra for a pseudo perturbed Cuban.  I came home and created the little yogi. Soon I was giving him/her/it away to friends and placing it on top of small boxes with inspirational quotes. So, in honor of my yoga instructor, the illustrious Rhonda, I bring you, the Yogi Box.  Each box is hand carved, you will notice that all lines are composed of dots, I am still currently teaching myself how to use the tool.  It has a nasty habit of getting a tad bit hot and my small digits take quick offense. The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.

Hialeah Haikus

 The Poetry Book of the Year according to New Times Miami  “Sopa de pollo, Vivaporub on the chest,Bye-Bye Catarro”.

So goes one of a collection of hilarious, poignant, and at times even satirical or nostalgic haiku poems found in Editorial Ultramar’s latest publication:  "Hialeah Haikus".  (http://www.hialeahhaikus.com).
Put together by Foryoucansee—a collective of young, native Miami artists—the book combines ancient Japanese short-form poetry with a certain je ne sais quoi only familiar to those of us raised in the 305!

“ITT said no.
Cordon Bleu said no (for now).
Gonna be a cop.”
It’s a small book, great for coffee table perusing (or restroom reading), and at $10, makes a great gift to anyone who gets what Miami is all about.

“Like, bro, why, bro, why
For real, bro, seriously
Man, bro, like, come on”

The book has twice been presented to standing room only crowds at Books and Books in Coral Gables, and has received much attention and accolades from local media and Miami enthusiasts.  Here are a few of the things that have been written about the book:

“A book of poetry that only a Miamian can appreciate.” –NBC Miami


“Seventeen syllables at a time, the writers try to celebrate the Miami culture they know and grew up with. That's not the slick image of South Beach from television, but the Cuban-American culture that pulses in the suburbs of Kendall, at the spring formal at Belen Jesuit prep school or in the agua, fango y factoria of Hialeah (a less-than-flattering reference to the city's water, mud and factories).” –The Miami Herald
