Hand Constructions
The HANDS are the tools of my soul, they are always dry, bruised, cracked, they are no longer smooth and soft, they have an imprint of memory by the work I do. A life of work, they conduct my senses, my heart, they reflect my pasión to create and construct. I can see them moving, working, manipulating, grabbing and holding. These pair of artisans are always there with me in my studio, helping, guiding. I wanted to create with fused iron a concentric structure. I let them guide me throughout the process of building and fussing. To hold the structure I made with clay a mould to make an imprint of my hands holding together. The result was a shapeless base in cooper with a drypoint technique to mark the lines of my hands. These brooche is a homage to my Hands
