About The Artwork

The piece talks about the difficulty of accessing a refuge, the ideal place. The 3cm x 6m crochet ladders symbolize the difficulty of finding moments of intimacy with yourself. A very long ladder of which the first 2 meters drag, the first stage of the way, to then be suspended until reaching the refuge. The little house made of white clay (earthenware) and the crocheted ladder refer us to the home environment, of the feminine. The house as protection.

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.
