Carlos is a highly skilled jeweller who is committed to essence-based creation. Whereas many jewellers begin with an abstract concept or a design, Carlos begins with the materials themselves, usually stones and metals. He senses the essential properties of the materials and his designs evolve, always keeping faithful to the individual character of the materials to hand. He has developed a personal vocabulary for jewellery making and developed deep skills in fabricating, decorating and joining.
Carlos has worked and exhibited extensively in South America, particularly in Chile and Argentina.
In the UK he has exhibited in venues in Brighton and he studied advanced techniques at the famous West Dean College in Chichester. His remarkable skill in fashioning precious metal has been recognised by leading makers. Carlos has chosen jewellery as his chosen form of expression as he likes art to interrelate with its owner, becoming an extension of the self; a contribution to a person’s identity.
