Istituto d’Arte Lucca
Accademia Belle Arti Firenze
I have worked several years as an assistant stage designer at the Teatro del Carretto, an International theatre company in Lucca ( Italy), creating clay masks and theatre props.
Thanks to this experience I have learned and developed the skills and appreciated the ductility and beauty of this natural material.
All my creations are molded out of clay, fired, individually hand-painted and finally wax polished.
My favourite sculptures are female heads.
I believe they embody my vision of beauty in its purest form.
Female faces with their different features and expressions allow me to explore my imagination and creativity, playing and experimenting with lip colours and eccentric hairstyles, in stark contrast with the white of their skin.
My ladies look up, beyond the commonplace, oblivious of the world around them.
In their expressive immobility is the memory of the ancient people of my land, the Etruscans.
