Inspired by Nature, Jéssica Burrinha has worked with various materials such as wood, clay, metal, plaster cement and earth. In 2018, she started to investigate the potentiality of raw and compacted earth, after attended a compressed earth workshop, as part of the European project LearnBION, given by architect by architect Tânia Teixeira at the Faculty of Fine Arts, in Lisbon.

Currently, she is deeply involved in the interaction between space and compacted earth, always seeking to highlight the simplicity and purity of the essential materials. The beauty of her work lies in the of her sculptures, which degrade and regenerate, considering them as "living sculptures".
