Alphabet Aerobics

A collection of strangely shaped raw clay sculptures, Alphabet Aerobics is the result of Anton Alvarez’s obsession with creating his own tools and machines — and not being able to predict the final outcome.


To get a little technical, Anton’s latest whizzy contraption has a 3000 kilo press which pushes clay through a machine and through individual nozzles that Anton designs. The result can quite literally be anything. Speed, height and shape all manipulate the end result and create soft, lumpy swirls of clay which become the sculpture.
