The S o f f i o collection is part of a much larger ceramic project that I titled "The Lands of the World." It gathers a series of objects deliberately inspired by nature, contemplating their forms through which life passes, in their morphological aspect as a living organism. The aesthetic intention of the entire work is not just resolved in a plastic solution with which clay is treated but
goes much further than the representation of a natural form, urging the viewer to pay greater attention to the earth that hosts us and to the main form of life on this planet, such as plants.

It is their journey on earth that fascinates me the most, the journey they have made with us when we domesticated them by crossing their seeds. But there are places like wild gardens where plant life takes root insistently, for example, poppies among train tracks, lichens growing on walls and ruins, or desert succulents capable of gathering every drop of moisture. Only by walking on the ridge of this boundary between the domesticated and the wild can we perceive the work that plants do for us, these knights of life.

The S o f f i o collection also stands out for the particular process with which the clay was modelled. The vases, in fact, were sculpted with the "wind," so to speak, with a breath of compressed air guided by the hand of the author shaping the leaves, much like the wind shapes the
contours of rocks. In this case, the object takes on a symbolic and poetic value in which the artist's hand wants to intimately retrace the forces present in nature, reconstructing a path even if artificially.
