Micro weaving with horsehair and vegetal fiber Tampico
In my work I try to combine tradition and the artisan know how with local raw materials and contemporary art,
creating pieces of jewellery that rescue the craft knowledge and wisdom.
Part of my artwork is a resignification work of the unique and traditional Chilean technique of horsehair micro-basketry, modifying the proportions and dimensions of the knowledge learnt,
exploring the raw material fragility and resistance and shapes limits.
The collections made comprehend shapes built from an overloaded woven that reinterprets a tradition,
a slow process, without limits, that construct and deconstruct a woven, setting the pace of time between the fingers.
Creating unique pieces that converse between the materials, the technique,
the history, the identity, the daily stories, interweaving an imaginary.
