THE SURVIVING QUESTIONS

1. IN ONE SENTENCE, HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE WHAT YOU DO?

I would define it as a choice for a passionate life.

2. WHAT DID YOU LEARN THANKS TO YOUR HANDS?

I learned that if you have a gift or something similar, an special ability, you have the obligation of sharing it with the world around you. Your hands speak for your heart and your thoughts. They are your tools of communication with the world. They produce, translate your ideas, materialize them. You have to value and take care of them.

3. IF YOU HAD TO SUGGEST A TEENAGER TO FOLLOW YOUR PATH, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

The only thing I would say is to work with passion and never betray your ideals. Always answer to your most honest being, that will make you triumph in the deepest sense, which has nothing to do with financial success.

THE SURVIVING STORY

I started since I was very little painting and drawing freely, creating my own worlds to play and my own characters. As a teenager I started to study in a workshop and then I became a professional at the “Facultad de Bellas Artes”. There I took the path of ceramics and never left it. Life itself took me to be an artisan artist. It is the only thing I could have been. At the “Facultad” I understood that it was my life’s choice. I learned to be a professional in production and in teaching. I learnt a lot working and I still learn constantly from my colleagues, from my students, my mistakes and my successes. I love what I do; I wouldn’t change it for anything.
