After his staying at the Seminary of Ceramic Studies in Sargadelos, he establishes a special relationship with ceramic materials, which are present in most part of his work. From 1990 onwards, he focusses mainly on the concept 'installation'. Narration, social themes, the use of the ground and the presence of poetry together with the mixture of different currents such as conceptual and minimal expressionism are recurrent themes in his work.
