This B&W collection plays with these two colors, making the different pieces with white stoneware and black porcelain.
These totems are composed of superimposed ceramic pieces, which come from the field of utilitarian ceramics. Bowls, vases, plates, which when taken out of context become geometric, abstract figures. Once they are made on the lathe they are deformed and perforated and then passed through an iron tube, creating vertical shapes.

Born in Barcelona. I graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Castilla la Mancha in 1995. I have studied art in different European universities and workshops of specialization in the trade of ceramic lathe and glazes. I started my professional career with "LUZDELUZ", a small company dedicated to the creation and production of lamps, thus combining my knowledge of sculpture and design. The Totora lamp was one of my most successful projects. Selected for the FAD Design Awards, it is currently marketed nationally and internationally since 2003, with great sales success. Years later I sold the rights to the lighting company Carpyen SL, to dedicate myself to sculpture professionally. I have made several individual and collective exhibitions, and my work is exhibited in private and public collections. I have lived in Cuenca, Milan, Sicily and Lisbon. At present I live in Barcelona where I work in the creation of sculptures with my own ceramic workshop. With the discovery of clay and the technique of the lathe, I start a new artistic path. Lover of the utilitarian ceramics, for its elegant formal simplicity and functionality, I investigate on its transformation in artistic objects exempt of its original use. These pieces, taken out of context, playing with composition, become abstract geometrical figures of marked verticality. One of the characteristics of my work is the use of clay, without glazes or artifices. I like to let the material speak.
