Great Oscar Fish, author ceramics with contemporary expression modeled in handmade form.
This fish is a work made without molds which makes it a unique piece of author.
How it's done
The Oscar fish is made with a lastra, which is a clay plate, modeled in an artisan form with help of paper. After its first cooking, it is painted with its own paints, the glazed ones. It goes back to the furnace at the melting temperature of the glass which in this case is 1000 º.
Finally, it is embedded in a clay and iron stand. This support enables the movement and that orient your look to us, this makes your presence very communicative. This cheerful and colourful look is a great presence in any interior decoration with the excellence of contemporary ceramic expression artwork.

Where I inspire
I inspire myself in the natural elements to create these pieces symbols 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.
I am inspired by the symbolism of the animals, in this case of the fish that, since ancient times, represents the resistance and the ability to overcome, by its attitude of swimming against the current, facing the obstacles of life. https://www.dicionariodesimbolos.com.br/peixe/.
The pleasure of clay
I like to work the mud. It gives me great pleasure to explore your plasticity. It keeps the gesture printed on it along the way of searching for the piece. 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
