Hi, I'm Merche, an artist specialized in ceramic sculpture .

I was born in Malaga, where I have my little workshop by the sea.

Since I can remember I have always been creating . I have explored all kinds of disciplines, from drawing and painting, through photography and sculpture through different techniques and materials.

When I discovered the possibility of making figurative ceramic sculpture a decade ago, I knew that I had found my medium. Working with my hands in clay , such a primitive and organic material, as well as being extremely pleasant, allows me to connect with my most intuitive part.
 

Vulnerable, intimate ... ceramics have connotations that load with meaning the predominant theme in my pieces: the human figure, its relationship with itself and its contradictions , forming a symbolic universe of its own between the dreamlike and the surreal.
