This idea was born by chance during one class when I was teaching drawing. I always used bottle caps as containers to mix the inks, especially for china-ink, one of the most used techniques for beginner students. But after a time using it, the caps usually ended up in the trash.

So that day I remember trying to scrap the first one and since then it has become an addiction. It is like a rudimentary/simplified process of the scratchboard technique, in which I specialized. For me, the caps have become some kind of cult objects that translate moments of spiritual transformation and images that inhabit my consciousness.
