How would you define your work?
I consider that the careful selection of materials, the refined technique and the manual work make my pieces unique. The creative experimentation through art, design and craft processes has led me to a hybrid terrain of collaboration with visual artists, performers, poets and choreographers.
How do you express tradition and innovation in your work?
I am interested in expanding the infinite possibilities of ceramics in fields such as sculpture, performance and contemporary dance. I believe that the dialogue between this craft and other disciplines makes my work innovative.
What would you advise a young ceramicist?
I would suggest that they always keep their eyes open, broaden their training as much as possible, never surrender their ability to chance and to remember that ceramics requires a lot of perseverance, discipline and dedication.
Could your profession be in danger?
At the moment, there is a worldwide boom in the practice of ceramics, so I don't think it is in danger. What could be at risk is the more traditional trade in old pottery ateliers where the craft has been honoured from generation to generation. We must preserve, dignify and value this way of working.
