Welcome to this site.

Some time ago I decided to use the capabilities of Internet to break time and space frontiers. The idea was to exhibit my artworks, I wanted that any people at any place and any time could see them. However, there are another barriers like language.

At the begining, this site was entirely in Spanish, but now, since 2007, I will make an effort to publish in English. Everybody obviusly don't speak the same language but many people in the world speak English or take it as an idiomatic option.

I hope you enjoy it.

Acknowledgment

I wish to thank to Yordi Arteaga, portrait photographer (the rest of the pictures were taken by me).

Profile on My Glass Art

"343. Vitruvius, the architect, says in his work on architecture that the measurements of the human body are distributed by Nature as follows: that is that 4 fingers make 1 palm, and 4 palms make 1 foot, 6 palms make 1 cubit; 4 cubits make a man's height. And 4 cubits make one pace and 24 palms make a man; and these measures he used in his buildings. If you open your legs so much as to decrease your height 1/14 and spread and raise your arms till your middle fingers touch the level of the top of your head you must know that the centre of the outspread limbs will be in the navel and the space between the legs will be an equilateral triangle."

"To emphasize only the beautiful seems to me to be like a mathematical system that only concerns itself with positive numbers."

"The height of the capital is half of the diameter of the lower part of the column, and is divided into three equal parts; one is given to the abaco, (which form is usually called the dado) the other to the ovolo, and the third is divided into seven parts; of one the fillet under the ovolo is made, and the remaining six are for the collarino. The height of the astragal is double that of the listello or fillet under the listello, and its center is made upon the line that falls perpendicularly upon the said listello, upon which also falls the projection of the cimbia, which is as thick as the listello."
