I am a ceramic maker based in the Chicago area. I am originally from Brazil, but I have lived in the US for half of my life.
After having to cut short my orchestral conducting career because of hearing problems, I found clay and, with that, rediscovered my creative voice.
I am attracted to clean lines and organic textures, and I hope my pieces convey a sense of peace, equilibrium, and serenity.
Each piece is designed individually, but they work particularly well in groups, interacting as an ensemble.
