Katrin Schikora,, of German origin, is co-founder of TAKTO, together with George Samuelson. In 1990, Katrin visits Mexico for the first time, falling in love with the country and its people. After finishing her studies in ceramics, photography and Art Therapy in London, England, Katrin decides to start a new life as a visual artist and ceramic designer in Mexico in 1992, training local people so that they can be part of her work team. Katrin has exhibited her artwork widely, both nationally and internationally, for which she has won numerous prizes and awards. She has realized a great variety of commissioned work for private, commercial and public spaces.
In her quest to grow and gain a deeper understanding of human nature, Katrin has spent the last several years studying semiotics, Lacanian psychoanalysis, and the Bön Buddhist teachings. Katrin is currently in the process of developing a new ceramic product called aquapeanut®, produced with EM technology (based on Dr. Higa's research) to deprogram and revitalize water.
