POTTERY & Visual ArtisT
The nostalgia for the land, the sea and the steppe is perceived in the forms that appear in the work, which flow and move in connection with something that persists in the ancestral.
The work process is a journey towards the definition of the work, where the alchemy of clay and the wheel are essential.
The pieces are powerful and evoke the ancestral, often with volcanic shapes that speak of something that cannot be repressed.
Much of my work is built with the elements that arise from the work process, mainly with matter, which is not reduced to its pure state but can also manifest itself in abandoned or broken objects that were made with ceramics. These processes are not mechanical, on the contrary, they obey an emotional heuristic that orders and defines the investigations.
