This is an ongoing series of porcelain scissors that started in 2002. When I began creating these pieces, I was just moving to the USA from Cuba. It was a period of intenseĀ change, cultural rupture, and growth. Scissors as a symbol of duality was the perfect subject for me to explore at the time.

From the exhibition, An Inventory of Tools for Coping.
