Custom Home Designer
The leap from earth and water to the digitalized world of architectural design is not as radical as it may seem. I find the process of designing buildings and making pottery is fundamentally the same. Whether hand coiling clay or using state-of-the-art architectural software, it’s still about creating a product that’s beautiful, symmetrical and harmonious with its intended environment. At their essence, pottery and architectural design are both outward expressions of inward energy and organic reflections of their designer.
I grew up in Brazil. My aunt gave me mountains of clay, and easy access to the secrets of her jungle backyard with its noisy birds and hiding creatures. I had a boy’s eternity and messy freedom to coat my hands in earth and water. Born to create with clay, I’ve done so from the beginning.
