In the backgarden of my house is a terrace that became an atelier. Here I make my porcelain sculptures and here I get inspired by the delicate plays of light and shadow all around me.
The slideshow with pictures of my atelier and surroundings was made on request of the curators of the 6th World Korean Ceramics Biennial 2011. It has been used for a video about the workplaces of artists who participated in the exhibition.
Repost from Nefolomanzia : a review by . beautifully written with great insight!
E veniamo infine al libro.
Formed by the touch of violin strings,
uplifted by the voice of the bandoneon,
unfolded by the gentle embrace of the guitar sound.
She gathers sadness in her petals; longing, lost loves and kisses.
She dreams in the shade of ancient life oaks where lichen veils dance on the rhythm of a song brought on the river by the wind.
Her red rims are wounds of 'saudade' and burn bronze in the evening sun.
She grows transparent with light, her heart filled with possible worlds.
