The dynamic interaction between glass and clay, water and earth... I have been working on ceramics for more than twenty years, opening my first studio in 1993. Currently I have my studio in my Southern home, where I work mainly in the refinement of the technique that I have been developing for years, the combination of ceramics with fused glass. The result is an extreme range of colors, from bright orange to earthy brown, the contrast between the depth and transparency of a blue pool of glass and the hard and stony surface of the clay, reminders of some ancient civilization. Having been raised in a culture where color is an expression of the picturesque environment, my work is a mixture of vivid tropical colors, memories of my childhood, the translucency of the Caribbean sea and a deep influence of the native pre-Columbian cultures. My work speaks of ingenuity, happiness, the dreams and pleasant memories of a remote childhood and an infinite number of already-told stories.
