The lack of conformity is part of the message I wish to convey through art: an anticipation of new hope. The ceramic pieces I sculpt are more like soul containers that convey with every detail a whole heritage I carry within me, yet evolve from these roots to voice my pains of yesterday, birthing fresh passions.
