With my sculptures I evoke the Apachetas, altars dedicated to the Pachamama. The Incas on their long journeys through the highlands, far from their home, built altars with stones from the road to pray to the Pachamama, in their prayers they begged for protection on their journey, they searched through this accumulation of stones, to connect with their supreme being.

Through the use of ceramics as a medium, I make my sculptures seeking to create my own Apachetas as a symbol of protection. Just as I live as a foreigner in a country far from my homeland, and despite always feeling very well received and protected, my sculptures are stones and Apachetas created as companions, as symbols of protection for those who seek them.
