The concept of this project is getting clearer. I want a darker, more somber, harsh appearance. I am now trying darker clay bodies and bigger sizes.

I want my clay sculptures, these abstract triangular architectures with their unproportioned and nonfunctional openings, to be read as a metaphor of the secluded, muted houses that lock one inside, the darkness within, the unknown.
