Artist's Work


    Work introduction

    Going through many and different stages over the years that I am involved with ceramics, I try to get to know the material as well as myself, who I am and what I want. I am expressed by forms simple, fine, without any decor and intense colors. I like in my work to coexist different clays of color and texture, different surfaces, others clean-quiet, others that have some rhythm written on their bodies, others perforated, others not. All together create something united, coexisting, discussing. All this has to do with the diversity and uniqueness of each person in a society and how one complements the other. I believe in teamwork and when it is staffed by disparate members.
