These sculptures were born because of my children. I invited them to my studio, some years ago, when they were still young, to play clay with me. I have bought a semi professional clay to experiment. I have to say I like experimentations. Beside, it was a good excuse to integrate with my children. It was fun.
To summarize, when I noticed I was creating small goddesses.
I liked the new play and produced many of them along the years and decided to, one by one, enlarge them and convert them into bronze.
One example of what happened:
Grande Mãe – 4cm x 10cm x 7,5cm – original in clay and bronze
“Grande Māe” – 0,40m x 0,60m x 0,70m
Some of them are today in a beautiful garden…
