Sculpture made of iron and glass. All the articles are made by hand by artisans from the Region of Murcia, each object is unique and unrepeatable and is not the same as the one in the photograph.



Flyppy, Ismael Cerezo Ramírez (Murcia 1967), with practically self-taught training (except for some courses at the Rectory, Barcelona or Granja de Segovia). Ismael learned about glass through the Majorcan Pere Ignasi, when he already had a long experience with iron. In Palma de Mallorca he would spend two years with him -1992 and 1993- in his workshop in S'Hostalot where they began to mix iron and glass in joint creations. Upon his return to Murcia, Ismael opened a workshop and continued working with glass. The pieces signed by Flyppy give us the vision of those who work with glass with a professional concept, commissioned, with creative independence but subject to the market. In these works, the presence of the glass material prevails over any other reading or interpretation. "Spontaneity" is what I like most when working with glass. «It's very immediate, you don't have to wait for it to dry, like ceramics, nor do you need a mold, like in the case of bronze; here everything is more spontaneous and allows you to improvise». And for more than two decades he has been working with these materials, which combine hardness and fragility, to create lamps and sculptures of plants or animals and insects –some of them luminous, to enhance “the play of glass with light”– such as ladybugs , spiders, herons, fish, bulls, owls, butterflies... Beings that "come out of the 'intraser'", sometimes even without having thought of them before. “There are pieces that are thought about, that are drawn before they are carried out and others that are not”, and adds that the key to not copying oneself is “never stop experimenting”. Pieces in which color, the mix of shades, takes on great importance; In fact, I started working with glass "by chance, looking for something to give color to the works." Now, with experience in tow, they say that the most important thing when working with it is "knowing how to make it profitable, because it is an expensive material." In Flyppy's workshop, the burning paste becomes an insect, which turns into a firefly-lamp. The iron embraces the glass, which abandons itself to its warm embrace, and the sparks released when welding fill the workshop of this artist of color and movement. The inert material comes to life at the hands of the artists, who rescue, recycle and solve the future of an abandoned iron to which chance has wanted to grant one last privilege. A master in the domain of iron and glass, between the two of them they have created a universe full of bugs, lamps, furniture and public and private installations; sculptor who masterfully combine iron and glass to create forms and creatures that our imagination can hardly accept or conceive. Think the most utopian to turn it into the most original reality. This is not a contradiction, but the essence that spills its sculptural elements or, let's say it another way, its pieces of broken iron and informal glass, transformed into sculptures brimming with elegance and creativity.
