Behind my work there are a few questions hidden. I see my work as a way of finding out the answers for these questions.
The relationship we have with our own bodies is one fo the questions I am interested. Do we really fell it completely ,as a whole, or do most of us fell it as separated parts as our medicine likes to see it?

Do we inhabit this body of ours or do we live in our heads most of the time?
Another question I like to think about is the value of things. What determine the values of things: ourselves? What do you think it is a luxury item? I believe in the value of creation and work. I believe in the energy spent on each piece, no matter its material.
A material means something for a culture and something completely different for another culture. So who decides what is the value of things?
To answer these questions for me is to engage in a process. I have a rational me who needs a method of creation. So one very important part of my work is consacrated to develop a method, which means to stablish the experimental conditions , stablish its limits. This is the attitude behind the making of all pieces.

So I choosed to work with a minimum of tools. Most of the work have been done using my bare hands: molding the clay, painting the pieces. Those were the conditions stablished in the begginig: to get the maximum I could from the most pure way of production.
As a theme I started thinking about the most simple form that could give me the most basic jewellery: the circle.
From a circle I can have a ring. From many rings I can have an armband , I can have a necklace..

And then as I am always looking for balance it came the time for the intuitive part of me take over the process and allows other forms to come alive.
After sometime many pieces have been produced and now a new fase has started for them: they leave my own private environment and get the world.
