Caught in time.

This is a really spontaneous piece that I am quite fond of..

I was talking to a friend of mine over coffee about “making” and how some times pieces can take months to make sense and become real or the complete opossite.

I’ve lost plenty of hours of sleep thinking if what I did had any sense at all and then working to see how I could make it clearer. In all truth I believe in being honest and making from your gut and heart, the only thing I am certain of is of the comunion between your subconcient and hands.

All my questions are not answered yet and maybe there is no answer to them at all..but I live for the explosive beautiful moments of making, concentration, losing track of time, of truly not thinking at all and just moving your hands,when there is that rush to finish and then holding a finished piece, your idea in a tangible form for the first time.

As for this piece, she simply invites you to look closer.IMG_2099 (2)Entrycode 012208

Jean Dubuffet

                                                                       Apartment houses ,Paris, 1946
I have always directed my attempts at the figurative representation of objects by way of summary and not very descriptive brushstrokes, diverging greatly from the real objective measurements of things, and this has led many people to talk about childish drawing…this position of seeing them (the objects, fh) without looking at them too much, without focussing more attention on them than any ordinary man would in normal everyday life..
Character, 1944
People have seen that I intend to sweep away everything we have been taught to consider – without question – as grace and beauty; but have overlooked my work to substitute a vaster beauty, touching all objects and beings, not excluding the most despised – and because of that, all the more exhilarating….

I would like people to look at my work as an enterprise for the rehabilitation of scorned values, and, in any case, make no mistake, a work of ardent celebration….

I am convinced that any table can be for each of us a landscape as inexhaustible as the whole Andes range… I am struck by the high value, for a man, of a simple permanent fact, like the miserable vista on which the window of his room opens daily, that comes, with the passing of time, to have an important role in his life. I often think that the highest destination at which a work of art can aim is to take on that function in someone’s life.

 A little secret that I have sought for a long time by way of a fortuitous encounter quite unrelated to the matter: for example six months I try to draw a camel in a way that satisfies me, and I make a thousand attempts without ever managing to do it. Then one day it is a drawing of a plump on the label of a pot of jam or the shadow thrown by an ink pot, or something or other equally unrelated to the matter that provides me with the solution. This kind of thing has happened so often that I have acquired the habit of always being on the outlook, and when I want to draw a camel I no longer limit myself, as I once did, to looking (only, fh) at camels…
                                                                                             Il flute sur la boss (1947)
On Art Brut: Those works created from solitude and from pure and authentic creative impulses – where the worries of competition, acclaim and social promotion do not interfere – are, because of these very facts, more precious than the productions of professionals. After a certain familiarity with these flourishings of an exalted feverishness, lived so fully and so intensely by their authors, we cannot avoid the feeling that in relation to these works, cultural art in its entirety appears to be the game of a futile society, a fallacious parade.

Casa March

A while back I did a post about “Ateliers” 

Well this weekend I had the chance to visit the real thing… 



Let me just say, this place is a combination of things I love, history, tools, goldsmithing, enameling and woodwork.

For an hour an a half I had the joy of listening to stories, of seeing rooms filled with inviting corners, so many tools! 





This is a live in workshop, so there is a beautiful antique house to go with it, where some looms where placed and he mentioned how when it was active, he remembers his aunts threading gold for the costumes of the Saints, while the men made jewelry for priests, enameled pieces for churches, etc.

We are talking of hundreds of years, making this place so magical, so intriguing .. would you like to see it in action? I recommend the blog:



You can see all the photos I took over here

Needless to say I had a pretty good weekend🙂

Sylvia Plath



I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.



It is a feeling that no matter what the ideas or conduct of others, there is a unique rightness and beauty to life which can be shared in openness, in wind and sunlight, with a fellow human being who believes in the same basic principles.




I want to taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of nonfeeling, or stop questioning and criticizing life and take the easy way out. To learn and think: to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love.




Touching and seeing..

“Utopos” is a metaphor, a poetic manner to express ideas about the universe and about time. Not a very original subject but one that art has continued to query all throughout cultural history. Questions, an unsatisfied curiosity and perhaps the best way to get closer to an answer is through the senses, especially touch and seeing. The hand represents the humanizing aspect, the awareness of having to get closer to the knowledge, not overcoming it but understanding it. The black is the darkness where one has to look for the light.

Making life changing decisions and pushing evey second a little more

Well hello again, oh how I miss to write in my blog everyday, back when I was an office worker I wrote every morning.

These days I hardly touch the computer, but I am about to do something a bit crazy , a bit risky or just what I had to do as some say.

When I first quit my job, the idea was for me to have time, time to make jewelry, to be happy, to go for walks, to visit my grandma, get a part time job take it easy just go live day by day.

But then I found myself feeling better than ever, just thinking how good it is to be home and decided to now go back to working for anybody and just do my own thing.

Risky and well I wont be receiving a paycheck at the end of the month, and now I have to do jewelry for selling which means more pieces, repeat some and so on.

I did this experiment for a month and so far it’s been ok, I paid my bills,I’ve managed to not starve myself and well I’m at it.

Thinking and thinking about the future what all of this will bring, I talk to people that have online business and work from home and they do great, but agree that it’s definitely harder to push yourself to work when you are home..

This is just the beginning of my story, of my story as a self employed person , of someone doing what they love the most, my life is surrounded by jewelry my every thought is crazy but i feel really complete sitting down to make something new.

Most of my things I sell them here in my country and I am living out of this but I want to take it further so I will give more attention to the site ( )

The plan is to work at least 8 hours daily advertising, making things anything, is a one person deal so I pretty much do it all😀

Pretty soon I’m moving to a larger house so I can get my workshop in place and maybe even a show room, I will get internet there so I can write and post things everyday I got plans and plans and got a law that whatever idea i have I will do immediately i can just to push myself to go one step up every single day.

This all is pretty much my dream coming true little by little😀
