FOLLOWING THE TIDE
This collection is inspired by the lagoons and cenotes in the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico: the movement of the tide and the change in topography reveal different materials shaping the intersection of earth and water. "Following the Tide" is an explosion erupted from the circular nucleus, dispersed into crushed Forest Green marble and aggregates of recuperated brass. It is composed in a pigmented resin on an oxidized bronze base.

“Flora Threads” is a Murano soliflore collection of unique mouth-blown pieces by local Venetian craftsmen. The collection is a series of thin and narrow flower holders designed with different dimensions to create a dynamic and playful setting for accessorizing shelves and tables. Their rich texture is attained by infusing recuperated steel threads within the Murano glass, creating uncontrolled shapes. The glass, tainted with wide hues of color, ranges from alessandrite and amethyst to amber, ruby and cobalt.
