volcano series

The Volcano series is a body of work made with clay
extraxted from the many volcanic arcs of Lanzarote, Spain.
Its high content in ashes, silica and alumina creates an unique
reaction with my glazes that gives these pieces
their singular silvery dark patina.

The depth of their color connects each piece with my thoughts,
with memories and feelings. Each piece turns into a diary,
and a series of them become books, written with an idiomatic
force that my hands can only achieve
at the contact with the clay.
