Self-taught as I am, I never dreamed that my passion and admiration for Ceramics would turn into my way of life, would give meaning to my life.
It may well be that my inborn attraction to Nature pushed me down to the ground to be fused with earth, our true essence.
Through “natuRareza” I submerge myself into the vegetal Psyche in order to find out those tortured feelings, a product of the deterioration of the environment that we humans habitually cause.
My only wish is that my modelling goes in deeply into human sensitivity to revert the harm we are inflicting on ourselves.
