What craft do you focus on?
Artistic ceramics, sculptures
When and how did you get started?
In 2012 while living in Rome, I attended a ceramics basic course. It was then that everything clicked into place and I discovered my artistic medium, one that allows me to fully capture and express myself creatively. I left my career and started a year of Ceramics Masterclass, dedicated myself solely to ceramics, and fell in love with the versatility of the clay and all the creative process.

“Mi sveglio?” Sculpture for an exhibition in Rome in 2019.
If so, why?
The sculpture was inspired by Alice in wonderland. She was wondering if to go in the door or not to come back to the real world. Her face and sweetness reminds me of my older daughter.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m experimenting with my own glazes and terra sigillata. I also started a new project for a collective exhibition for the next year.
For me, nature is an unfailing source of inspiration and I love to explore it and capture it in my work.
I’ve always been fascinated by the complex and beautiful natural structures and textures found in plants, bark, seed pods, coral and shells.
If you weren’t an artisan, what would you be?
It’s hard to imagine myself doing something else. Maybe a painter, but still in the art/artisan field.
What is the epitome of happiness for you?
Be able to do a job which is what to do most, which is your passion.
Favourite colour and what it means to you?
Turquoise. It reminds me of water, regeneration, peace, calm, relaxation
And finally, what is your favourite indulgence?
A sunset at the beach… with some chocolate 😀
