Spanish artisan, designer and architect based in Italy. I work on the application of craftsmanship in objects and spaces design with a contemporary approach.
Graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Valencia and trained in Fashion Design in the same city, in 2013 I open my own fashion studio specializing in tailored garments. Two years later, I moved to Milan, where I will live other experiences as a designer and where I will resume contact with ceramics.
From my studies in Architecture, Fashion Design, Tailoring and Ceramics was born this project that brings together all these disciplines and allow me to develop projects with a global vision.
Influenced by the Mediterranean traditions and culture of my hometown – Valencia – my work revolves around ceramics and textiles. Each creation is the result of experimentation with natural materials, attention to detail and craftsmanship techniques. They are the result of the union between design and craftsmanship and emphasize the beauty of handmade things and their imperfections.
After two years of work, my project begins to develop and in 2019 I open my physical studio in Asola (Mantua), where I make all my products by hand in the most responsible way possible. I love to share my passion for craftsmanship, so in this space I teach everything I’ve learned over the years and since 2020 I’ve been working as a teacher in the Foppa Group (Brescia).
