Which other materials have you explored?
I began to research with iron, concrete and polyester. I combined iron and ceramics, iron and concrete. I was passionate. In my head I had the idea to merge drawing and ceramics. But my goal is simplicity, even if there’s a very complex process behind every piece.
How would you define the difference between art and crafts?
I think craftsmanship searches for perfection but also for profitability and practicality. The artist has a completely different point of view about materials, cost and time. I belong to both worlds. I create limited, unique pieces. But every object has a soul, they are powerful in the same way.

Could you describe your creation process?
First, I create a model in paper, then a second one in clay. Then I choose the material. Clay is the most abundant material on Earth, besides water. It’s full of energy and possibilities. It's infinite, like a white canvas.
Is it possible to innovate in ceramics?
Innovation and tradition are both the same for me. You must use your hands to find the shape, pattern and volume. In that sense I think the workshop is a private and intimate space. You must investigate what's in your soul. Researching is a very big task.
