BA (hons) Contemporary Applied Art in Ceramics , Crawford College of Art and Design
New Generation Gallery
I graduated Interior Architecture in Barcelona. I recently studied art at Kinsale College, level 5, at Coláiste Stiofain Naofa, level 6 and I graduated with BA (hons) Degree in Contemporary Applied Art in Ceramics from MTU Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork. As a nature lover I like to work with ceramics since I use the four elements, earth, water, fire, and air. I like to touch the clay with my hands, get dirty with it and feel the transmission of the earth to her body, which I then try to transmit in my ceramic works. I want my pieces to be unique, simple and natural, with very little manipulation, just as our Pachamama, Mother Earth, shows us. They can be murals to hang on the walls, sculptural, functional or decorative. I work with different types of clay and use electric, gas or raku kilns at low and high temperatures, with oxidation and reduction techniques.
