Ceramics

Bread and ceramics have a lot in common, they need to be shaped mainly by hand and baked in high temperatures, also both come from natural resources. Bread and ceramics are ancient’s practices that served ritualistic but functional purposes in different moments and cultures.

In my ceramic works I like playing with forms by creating oppositions—for example, oppositions between functionally and futilely, most of them loose their purpose by means of holes or peaks placed in wrong places.

 

I use the nose to represent a face and that element opens different associations, symbolically it refers to lies and formally to a cylinder that also reads as a phallus, therefore suggesting narratives of sexuality and power. These forms are both abstract figures and figurative representations.
