While firing some of his early work, Baruffi was discovered by a Brazilian famous ceramicist Megumi Yuasa, known worldwide, when he found one of his works in a kiln. "Whose work is that?!" began an introduction and friendship between the two. Yuasa advised Baruffi on concepts and encouraged the artist, "Remember there has to be a reason for what you do. Look at the big picture."
"I try to build and draw items that I invision. I do both as an exercise" said Baruffi. "I see conflict between creative freedom and the rules required of good technique. One thing that both sides have in common is their goal for perfection. Which I want to be evident in my work".
"The way that he sculpts alters the sense of the object from its daily use, into esthetic interventions, even changing place and function”, said a Journalist, Robinson Machado.
