Gaston Bachelard called him "the blacksmith" because of his taste for monumental metal sculptures. Chillida has also worked with other materials: wood, iron, granite and more contemporary materials such as concrete and corten steel. His works on paper are an important part of his creation. In ink, pencil, or through the technique of engraving, his works follow the same principle as his sculptures. To create different levels in his works, Chillida uses cutting and pasting of newspaper, wrapping paper, etc. He can also cut holes in paper supports, holding them together with strings.
