Egon Muñoz (Chile). Triwe bowl.
The raw material for his objects are the remains of trees that fell naturally or were felled during the colonisation of Araucanía, more than a century ago. «I find the wood in the rivers, lakes and forests of southern Chile. They have acquired unique colours, shapes and textures because the weathering of so many years and the intervention of micro-organisms and insects have left their mark. I try to preserve these characteristics so that the pieces express their history.” He currently teaches classes in Mapuche communities.
