Since 1982, I have been creating and manufacturing objects from various synthetic and natural materials , particularly the flexible PVC laminate . I dragged the market with series of personal products and accessories - bags , cases , folders , portfolios , briefcases - in several types of clear / transparent / colored / textured pvc -material with which I was the pioneer in systematic production of objects ,that could be seen on windows of the main shops that have emerged in the years 80 in Rio and São Paulo , soon coming to other cities in Brasil. Later in New York, where I had a small workspace in 83, and also could sell my creations during stayings in Glasgow and Paris in the early 90's.
In 1995 , I began to experiment the reprocessing of materials and leftovers from my work , recycling plastics using home equipment only , resulting in different original processes ... these techniques have been shared in workshops with artisans or students and Design professionals and related areas.
