"In my studio (in San Pablo Etla, Oaxaca) I model clay figures, adding various objects (little “messages”). The bronze foundry workers come to the studio, where I make the molds. These are taken to the foundry (in Amecameca, State of Mexico) where the bronze figures are cast. I add glass eyes, join the parts and treat the surface with oxidation.”
