Materials and techniques

The glazed, colored ceramics are made by hand from sheets of stoneware clay. These sheets are partly colored with pigments.
The works are glazed and fired in an electric kiln to 1200º C. For some forms lustres are used.

The monochrome terra cotta ceramics are made from sheets of earthenware-clay and polished with a little stone. The works are fired in an electric kiln to 850º C.
Some pieces are burned in an open fire and reduced, so they become vivid black.

There are also works made in moulds. They are glazed, monochrome and fired tot 1200ºC. in an electric kiln.
