Leveraging clay as my primary medium, I craft sculptures of flora that symbolize not only my profound connection to the earth below and around us but also to my cherished Mexican cultural heritage. My sculptural installations forge a symbolic link between plants and the environments they inhabit. Through my installations, I invite viewers to contemplate the profound interconnectedness of nature and our human experience. My sculptures are crafted through coil-building and hand-pinching techniques, shaping them to capture their distinctive essence, and leaving the marks of my hands visibly present. Some of my sculptures undergo a firing process, while others remain in their raw, ephemeral state, purposefully evoking the enduring and shared nature of the land we share.
