"Clay is an ancient mineral, not only because of its geological processes but also because of its anthropological traces. And it is precisely from this noble clay, subject to the impetuous fire, that ceramics results, a material present in the development of all human societies: the archeological vestige par excellence. Through the previous approach, my artistic research/creation arises, which seeks to question how ceramics become evidence of the man-territory-nature relationship. I start with a question that begins by delving into the aesthetics and symbolism of the past, especially the pre-Hispanic. I wonder how concepts from the past, such as "Totem" or "Fossil," can be revised in the contemporary and be thought through the ceramic language as future archaeology".
