Terra cotta has become second nature for this bold sculptor. Born to a family of potters, he started shaping artistic pieces since he was 16 years old.
His grandfather, a pipe user, also inspired him to fashion artistic and usable pipes from indegenous materials.
As daring as his ethnic artworks, Butch loves dressing up in loud colors and tribal jewelry.
In July 2009 he held his first solo show at Namit-Namit Pagkaon Kag Taliambong, Artekalye, Bacolod City.
