“Born in Santiago Chile, I have been influenced by its strong artisanal culture and political art. I feel a strong connection to copper, to me it represents the past and glass the present. Often, I incorporate the two materials into one body of work, creating an abstract narrative of a place and time. My work is becoming more minimalistic, playing with simple lines, volume, movement and texture. I enjoy manipulating properties of glass, through kiln casting and hot casting, specifically how it moves and how it reacts to its environment. This approach contrasts the immense amount of process and technique that go into my work, which might on the surface appear to be very simple in approach. My inspiration comes from the world around me, be it nature, the city or personal narratives, simplified, abstracted and made into tactile glass works.”
