Sandra Torres uses porcelain to cast a line of functional wares including vases, mugs, bowls, platters, and boxes.  The exteriors are rarely fully glazed however washes of color are used to define planes of the surface.

Torres creates her own drawn transfer decals which are used decorate her wares. The pieces are minimal allowing her to use either a single or two-piece mold. Her drawings are inspired by Scandinavian design, the structure of architecture and the softer natural world To add colorful accents to the white ground she adds slip trail drops of color.
