The Joies de Sorra (Sand Jewellery) are rings, brooches, bracelets and pendants of silver, gold or bronze where the outstanding feature is the granulated and rough texture that recalls the sand. Also surprising are the oxidised colours and the painting that covers the basic organic forms.They are hammered pieces of some atavistic feeling that links us to the distant past. With the ancestral technique of direct casting, by pouring, the original is replaced by the metal without moulds or intermediaries, providing it with fine definition of the textures and details, which are marked in the metal directly and makes us think of the whimsical textures of the sand.In the Joies de Sorra the rings are like plant bulbs, open fruits or latent seeds; the bracelets, supports for abstract paintings or subtle degradations; and the pendants have cracks and holes through which the metal lets us see, as if it were a concession, the skin.In these pieces, the gold and silver are mere vehicles of expression of a series of forms, textures and colours that we never associate with these materials: that of the always surprising transfiguration of metal.
