More than two decades have elapsed since I began working with sculpture.
The human figure has fascinated me; the lines, the poses and the texture.
I had done several studies alone and I attended to a technical collage for "electric arc & acetylene welding" plus foundry techniques; metal mechanic and pouring no ferrous metals, for the industries. When as, only practices and experiment by my self for all this years had given me the skills to develop my work.
Along with other sculptors in my home town, I learn the process of mold
making in silicon rubber and rigid mold in polyester resin as well cold molds in plaster; in the meantime I deep my self in the modeling and sculpting on Wax solid and hollow, burlap with plaster, clay and Terra cotta, ceramic pouring, and concrete.
In 1994 I began working with the ceramic shell casting in all it complexity. Consummate craft on vents and spurs, preparation of the core, facing, application of the investment; " the slurry " mixing and maintain, coating, drying of the shell; temperature and moist, holding armature and procedures, with grand success.   
Also, I had work on a different kinds of surface treatment, patination
"giving color " with different compounds by chemicals or acid
patination.
