The development of Palacios' works is derived from unique approach points. Firstly, in the context of materiality, Palacio’s has a complex crafting process through the use of raw glass and ceramic materials. As a result of his multiplex material process, combined with the exploration of geological processes of pyroclastic interactions, heat and chemical reactions, the American ceramicist creates intricate and playful narratives.
