In 2019 I was invited to create ceramic objects for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune movie adaptation. A limited number of one off, original pieces were made, half of which were hand selected for the set. Radical, worn surfaces, an otherworldly mood; welcome to the world of Dune.
Simple is beautiful. A sense of heritage with a contemporary modernity. The raw, simplistic elements, the muted tones I used in this series recall the natural, smoky memories, the handcrafted roundness of Neolithic ceramics. The plain surfaces and simple forms are capable of highlighting the inherent beauty of clay. Yet, the pieces are durable and functional.
I spent the October of 2018 as an artist-in-residence at the Valparaiso Foundation in Mojácar, Spain, learning new techniques and working with unknown materials, experimenting in a free-form way in a welcoming atmosphere.
Whispering Globes carry ancient and universal symbolism referencing completeness, unity, protection and femininity. Maybe with every Whispering Globe created and every wish whispered I came closer to our wish coming true…
The latest update brought a number of my recent creations to the site. Black and white objects born from the fascination for opposites, wild-clay experiments reaching back to the roots of beauty, Whispering Globes and other home decor objects in true harmony with nature. Some of them are also available for sale.
My first solo exhibition took place at Újpest Galéria, Budapest, Hungary. Primarily but not only showcasing Whispering Globes, most of them from the Raku harvest of the last 1-2 years. It was ceramicist Gábor Egyházy who invited the audience on a brief journey during the opening reception.
It was a fantastic experience to represent Hungary in the consulate’s booth at the world’s largest arts and crafts exhibition and fair in Milan, L’Artigiano in Fiera, for nine long and hard, but unforgettable days.
The Spirit of the Maker invokes all four elements – Earth, Fire, Air, Water – and the Raku technique to produce unpredictably unique ceramic objects while keeping their essential harmony with nature… and to create singular, tangible universes.
Truly fascinated by the beauty of the place, local landscapes and people, I had the chance to create Whispering Globes, accompanied by Gaby Picci, Rita Cafaro, Paola Bandini and others. I intended to incorporate all the surrounding natural beauties of Salento in my globes.
