I have always been inspired by the work of women artists who have been able to convey their intimate experiences about life through their works. Louise Bourgeois and her sculptures and art installations about her childhood and relationship with her father. Marina Abramovic and her performances about body boundaries. Ana Mendieta and her actions in connection with nature.

After experimenting throughout the university career with all sorts of materials, I discovered fortuitously the pleasure of working with naked hands on such malleable and sensory material as clay. The silence and the intimate, almost sensual connection that is created with this material as I model it is so fascinated that most pieces that I project are made of clay.

I’m moved to be able to create with such natural material, dust from the same soil pasted with water, which takes shape from the slight pressure of my hand and only needs air and fire to harden and become a durable and resistant material.

The raku firings, in which the pieces are subjected to violent changes in temperature, give the pieces a smoked and rustic appearance, from an object that has survived from birth to hard experience.

The process of creating a sculpture takes time, often slow and repetitive, leading me to a state of great presence. I feel at that moment that I am one with matter and that there is no distance between what I am and what I do. Sculpture allows me to be connected with the awareness of my life experience and reminds me to pay attention to what and with whom I share my time and affection, the two things that I find most appreciated in life. In my pieces, I put all the love I feel to be able to experience the same creative fact while exploiting the shape of everything that is alive, everything that grows, reproduces, becomes sick or dies.
