Inspired by nature, I seek to achieve unique textures using what I find on my way ... shells from Mediterranean beaches, linen threads, lichens from the forests of southern Chile, pebbles from English hills... I play with oxides to create combinations of colours and effects... and in the end uncover a distinctive design.
Each piece of my work is unique and allows me to share my inner world.
I studied ceramics in London, at the Putney School of Art and Design. During those 2 years, I learnt an extensive range of techniques but in the end, I fell in love with the wheel.
To take my work further, I joined The Kiln Rooms, an open pottery studio in Peckam London, where potters, beginners or yet established artists, share the space and equipment. I stayed 3 years and it has been a tremendous source of inspiration and opportunities. There I began to experiment and perfect my technique, thus developing my style.
Life took me from London to Santiago Chile, where I carried my tools and was lucky to join the studio Barro Gres. This created amazing opportunities of exchanges and experiments, an insight in Chilean contemporary ceramics.
Now back in London, I’m currently working at The Clay Garden, an open studio in Hammersmith.
