Catalogue Note

"César developed a clever technique. After small iron squares, like a potter with his clay coils, he modelled, built, turned and welded. He liked the tension created by the iron and which cannot be found in clay. He handled it like wax, but he needed to feel that joy, that suffering of iron as it resists and folds."
