MARCELO FERNANDEZ MAINARDI, ceramic artist
Nature, fragility, weightlessness and repetition are all key elements that inspire me to explore and shape the porcelain with spontaneity, creating new organic forms inspired by the natural world.
Environment, evolution of man, development on the planet and consequences on nature, are keys of my work. They have always an inherent relationship with nature.
I always try to depict a positive message too – the persistence of nature in recapturing what once belonged to the earth.
I have found a very strong point of connection with the mud-clay, because the fact of creation and destruction from this, is organic and symbolizes to sum up the beginning of our own lives.
