My finalist project of the Craft Awards This year's Comunitat Valenciana is called Jamba.

You know what a Jamba?

I was always struck by the doors of the old Valencian houses in the villages,

with those beautiful tiles in the frame, with animals, geometric motifs, flowers, etc.

These are the jambs.

I love ceramics and especially Manises ceramics, which has also been recognised by the Unesco That is why I have chosen the beautiful doorjambs of his town as decorative motifs as a tribute, specifically those that you can see in the street where the Manises Ceramics Museum is located.

That's why I decided to make them visible and share them on a silk scarf, as a way of remembering that we have so much beauty around us that we don't see or pay attention to, busy in our hurry or looking at our mobile phones.....

I like to work from tradition, from the roots of what I have in my proximity, in my local culture, from here to outside, because this is what makes me peculiar," he said.glocal“.
