He carved the sculptures of the facade of the Carmen
Convent Church towards 1697, and this is the best of his
sculptural oeuvre. These works are characterized by their
stylized forms.
He was also the artist of the sculptures on the frontage of
the Santos Juanes Church.
The rest of his known work has disappeared. His busts of
Felipe V, Maria Luisa of Saboya, and Prince Luis, which
were placed at the ends of Valencia’s Alameda Boulevard,
have been conserved.
