Fired clay, lime, lead + zinc alloy, wood, iron rod, geolite, vegetable fibres. This work comes from the show "Ambiart", born from the wish to stimulate a reflection about that which is destroyed and that which could be achieved by re-using and re-setting various materials. To give new dignity to matter and to the infinite materials generated by the basic elements existing in nature. Physics and metaphysics, form and volume, use and re-use.
