Statement

I live and work in Paris - France

I've been exploring ceramics for over 31 years. I'm researched and created many new materials from of Brazil´s minerals and clays.  The result is Refractory Land.

More recently, I has also been intensively painting, working on iron and wood sculptures, photography  and digital painting.

 I tend to look on the bright side of life and to see the best in people.

 I'm really into  spiritual awakening and spiritual development as it is bringing me lots of bliss and happiness. I love to interact as human beings in all the social and environmental causes, always approaching from a spiritual side.

 In my work, I associate the materiality with the silent sound of the form. It's through this process that I search for the exact starting point, but completely atemporal. I believe that the creation of our universe came from this silence. I vizualize the way of the wind, silently sculpting, throughout time, landscapes and worlds. I try to transport myself to this path, creating superposed erosions that fit into a ludic game where the sight finds this mute work. Inert but at the same time flutt

In my first exhibition at O3 Gallery, Rio de Janeiro(1984),I began my career in the survey forms and materials within the technique of contemporary ceramics.

 I lived in Paris in 1986, where I exhibited at the Gallery Cath'Art, and specializes in technical of Thermoformage glass.

For 10 years, the sculpture associated with the utility design, participating in the Contemporary Ceramics Movement in Brazil, in numerous exhibitions.

 In 1995, after studying with Angel Garraza, a famous spanish ceramist, I deepened the survey of more than 50 types of minerals and clays collected in various regions of Brazil, whose results are Refractory Land, with unprecedented colors and textures, which gave to my work a unique signature within the ceramic sculpture.

The exhibitions - "Landscapes of Gaia" (1996) in Toki Gallery in São Paulo and "Movements" (1998) in the Gallery Laura Alvim in Rio de Janeiro, were selected by the Brazilian Association of Art Critics as one of the Top 10 on these years.

 In 2000, I started a partnership with Marco 500-Design in São Paulo, where strings produced sculptures in polyester resin, where the result of their concerns before the materiality.

For five years, my sculptures were produced on an industrial scale, being sold in all states of Brazil, and winning two exhibitions annually in the Museum of Braziliam House, in São Paulo.
