Metal, singular masculine noun that encloses a very wide variety of different materials, is so widespread that we almost do not realize it. It is used both in the production of high technology objects and in extremely simple objects used in everyday life. Generally, except in some cases where design is critical to characterizing them, nobody is bothered with the shape of metal-built objects because they have to respond more to utility requirements then aesthetics. Yet, looking at them closely, carefully, metallic objects are endowed with intrinsic and hidden beauty which perhaps even their creators are unaware.
Beauty is everywhere, just look for it with the right eyes.

My challenge is to find her where less one is waiting for her. And succeed in bringing it to light. In my work, both professional and personal, I use color as well, but for this research on metal it is essential to use lights and shadows to exalt forms through the masses and voids. This helps to give volume, consistency, perhaps even solidity to the objects, to transfigure them from their context, thus exalting geometric shapes beyond the functional motifs for which they were conceived and created. That is how I try to give a new identity to metallic objects.
