“My work is a way of communicate with the people and myself…
When I am making a piece, is very important the process, the feelings that I am experimenting at the moment and all the energy that those are reflecting in each object; the mistake of the moment, is something that I enjoy and I support from my work. I like the idea of making something that when is finished can give me different images, ideas, forms and the complete definition of my concept.
I prefer to use hard materials like silver, playing with the hammer and with the fire obtaining as an outcome shapes and colors that make them alive… sometimes in an abstract way or another in figurative”.
