Description

Ceramic small flower with contemporary desing. This flower is handmade, it is a unique piece. Its size and color, has a great visual impact that brings into the house the freshness and joy of spring in bloom.

How it's done
With a clay plate called a ballast that is modeled in a handmade way. I follow every step to its final form. After the clay was dry, its first cooking. It is then painted with its own paints, glazed and goes back into the oven at the melting temperature of the glass which in this case is 1000º.
Finally, it can be fitted to an iron holder that is suitable for standing, or suspended on the wall as a frame.
The clay is a generous material and suit that leaves to warp and keeps the movement in it printed. But it is also capricious and sensitive matter that requires being respected throughout its modeling process, in its drying time and cooking mode, otherwise the result will be of failure.

Where I inspire
I inspire myself in the flowers. They bind us to affections and also to the natural elements of diversity and beauty of life. With the creation of these pieces I also intend to invoke their respect and preservation. Their color and shape have a force that carries nature into the interior of their home.
By developing the creation of this flower, I connect to the cycles of time, since the antiquity that the flower is associated with concepts of renewal of life and beauty.

The pleasure of clay
I like to work the mud. It gives me great pleasure to exploit your plasticity that allows and keeps the gesture in it printed along the way of searching the part. This millennial artistic material, expands to strengthen my creativity, as well as I feel that I continue to endless generations of ceramists who throughout the ages have worked and with them create pieces of great symbolic value and utility.
The pieces made in ceramics also have the primitive nature that aggregates the four elements: Air, fire, earth and water. Thus the presence of ceramic works in interior design, harmonize the inhabited space, making people more receptive and confident. https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feng_shui
