Exploring the spiritual dynamics between humans and the natural world using hundreds of ceramics molded manually that are then arranged in modules of patterned configurations. Following geometric formations imbued with an ancient symbolic meaning, they bring a sense of the meditative and the spiritual. Recurrent themes are birds and humans arranged repetitively, while labyrinths appear in circular or rectangular shapes. This time, he explains to CoBo about his love of ceramics and how he creates his ceramic world.
