I couldn’t explain how I was different.

A bubble of air and color that is the result of the sculpture and sanding of panels of colored methacrylate, glued and laminated on each other to form a single block. The mastery of Nando (one of the first craftsmen to work methacrylate to make objects of art) make them take that aerial, organic form. And only a delicate and careful final polishing reveals the surprising nuances, giving them to the light that activates and makes visible the transparencies.
