Carlos Otero is an Argentinian architect, designer and sculptor based in New York. Otero's unique hand-made sculptures represent a return to the primitive: they are small but potent works created in bold defiance of contemporary trends towards overscaling, technology and the excise of the artist's hand. 

Otero's process involves the preliminary sketching of his sculptures and hand building his works with a multitude of materials including ceramic, natural wood, unglazed and glazed fired clay and the application of an off-white matte finish.
