Catalogue Note

I began to work with fiber by coincidence –a sought coincidence- and have continued with it because it has never disappointed me. As I get to know it better, the better it knows me. In short, it has never stopped arousing my curiosity. Fiber is like an old pencil: one has used it for so long that you take it for granted. I am made of fiber because I have embraced it and because I know it.
