2004 - 2005

in 2004 I began a to create ceramic figure. I started in a traditional framework of life drawing and clay studies. However because of the ideas and themes I began to work with I began to make the figure in caricature.

Constructing the work in
layers with exposed
edges and cracks
I developed a
technique which
allowed me to give
fraile air to the work.

The clown and jester
series used the
costume as
disguise, and
the Ass is visual
representation of the
internal feeling.
Caricature allowed
me to inject humour
and pathos.
