                                            The dynamic interaction between glass and clay, water and earth...

I have been working on ceramics for more than ten years, opening my first studio in 1993. After my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, I have focused my attention on the development of "Utilitarian Art"; art that I define as the creation of unique objects meant to be not only admired but also used every day.

Having been raised in a culture where color is an expression of the picturesque environment, my work is a mixture of vivid tropical colors, memories of my childhood, the translucency of the Caribbean sea and a deep influence of the native pre-Columbian cultures.

Currently I have my studio in my Southern home, where I work mainly in the refinement of the technique that I have been developing for years, the combination of ceramics with fused glass, technique that I apply to Plates, Platters, Chargers, Coasters, Trivets, Bread Boxes and Spaghetti Boxes. Each piece is made out of a thick slab of earthenware clay and carved (not thrown) to its final form. Once all of the features are individually engraved and polished by hand, the ceramic object is meticulously fired several times to achieve its combination of stain colors and fused glass while maintaining its original porosity and texture.
