Christa Maresís current body of work in ceramics grapples with perceptions of domestic ideals and identity. She addresses the function within dysfunction through the use of autobiographical content.

Christa Mares, born and raised in Southern California until the age of thirteen, moved to Vancouver, Washington with her family. While living in Washington, she was classically trained in ballet through the Royal Academy of Dance. Christa studied dance through various schools and programs such as the Cornish College of Art, American Academy of Ballet and Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance. She then moved back to Orange County to attend California State University, Fullerton as a dance major. She later changed her emphasis and obtained her B.F.A. in ceramics and sculpture. Christa now attends University of Texas at Austin where she is currently working towards an M.F.A. in ceramics.
