I work creating organic forms, modelled in clay, which start from the circle and the work of the ceramic lathe. 
When I started working with this technique I realized that everything "revolved around" the feminine. 
The earth, the circle and the forms that came out of this millenary technique, which produces utensils that contain food, also very related to women. 
Soon I visualized the vases and the jars as symbols of the feminine body. 
The water jug, generous, that distributes and gives its life to the family. Pitchers that do not usually have a handle. Let no one force them to serve....
Free jugs, free women.... who give, of their own free will.
My sculptures or Totems, composed of stacked ceramic pieces, come from the field of utilitarian ceramics. Bowls, vases, plates, cups, which when taken out of context become abstract geometrical figures. I don't glaze the pieces, I let the material speak.  Once they are made, they are deformed and perforated and then they are passed through an iron tube, creating vertical shapes.

I was born in Barcelona in 1962 and I graduated in Fine Arts in Cuenca's University. I am currently working on the creation of Totems, made up of stacked pieces of stoneware, which come from the field of utilitarian ceramics. I use shapes with expressive deformations, fitting them into columns of variable composition. When I started working in this craft, I realised that everything revolved around the feminine. The earth, the circle and the shapes that emerge from this millenary technique produce utilitarian pieces that are the mark of ancient civilisations, apparently fragile, but which have survived thousands of years underground. The superimposition of ceramic pieces crossed by an iron rod was born as a symbol of women's work, care and generosity towards their loved ones, and at the same time alludes to the feminine role and its historical link with the domestic sphere. Now the work of the Totems has become a game for me, where I thread necklaces on a human scale.
