artist statement

My ceramic work is made for the Brazilian diaspora, the working class, and for all freedom fighters against capitalism. The doodles, speech bubbles, jokes, and patterns I scribble originate from old classroom notebooks, graffitied walls, and immigrant childhood memories. Portu-English, propaganda pottery, and people-centered slogans are my multi-lingual methods of communication. I sell, gift, and barter pots in hopes of promoting a class and cultural understanding of what I’ve lived and learned. Let’s pour a cup, discuss people power at the dinner table, and take our ideas to the streets!
