Behind this perfection there are years of research and centuries of tradition.
After a degree in archaeology and several years abroad, this self-taught ceramic has developed a unique and original style. Its “useless” ceramics reproduce everyday objects deprived of their function but charged with meaning, aestheticism and poetry. It is a protest against the unbridled consumption of our society, where what is considered necessary today is destined to become superfluous tomorrow.
