“I don’t consider myself a ceramicist, I just have curiosity for the process of transformation, that is my passion. This also occurred when I was a chef and baker.”


What do you want people to do or feel when encountering your creations? 

To feel a relationship with the shapes and textures beyond the immediate function of the object.

How do your pieces come to life? 

Through curiosity, exploration, and no fear of perfection or failure. I am always open to the possibility of creating any object in any field of design.

What funny moments, obstacles, or surprises have you encountered as a creator?

FUNNY MOMENTS: My obsession for making molds and finding a new silhouette, as well as the use of new clay and glazes. Today my mood board uses 1/3 of my studio, I can’t get enough.

UNEXPECTED: My favorite moment is when a piece breaks while we are trimming or sponging, a new product will come to life from the suggested new broken shape.

OBSTACLE: Time and space

What motivates and inspires you?

Sunny days, nature, and young people with ideas.

What makes a space special? 

Good people, good vibrations.
