Roberto creates hand sculpted bas-relief designs from the organic medium he developed. The medium dries hard and has the appearance of stone. Painting the finished work with acrylic, or bio "green seal" paints. Sometimes leaving it natural earth, plant or spiced colored he seals it with cactus juice or polyurethane. Enhancing his work with sand, glass, stones and metallic finishes makes a beautiful contrast on the sculpted surface. His medium is composed of non-endangered plant, wood, flowers, earth and stone.
