When did you become a ceramicist?
I was studying architecture, but I left university before completing my degree. I felt I wanted to have a son, and Andrea came into our life in 2014. When I became a mother, I felt I had so much energy, and I wanted to create something with my hands.
What happened after this life changing moment?
I was travelling with my family and one day, without any reason, I had an epiphany that I would become a ceramicist. The funny thing is that I had never touched a piece of clay before that moment! Since I was a child, I had a gift for handicrafts, but nothing more.
Did you learn from a master?
I had a meeting with a professional craftswoman, but she cancelled the course because she was too busy at that time. So I ordered the clay online and started teaching myself. Since then I have studied countless books and attended many online classes.
Could your craft be considered in danger?
No, not at all. I’m lucky, this is a period in which people are starting to appreciate handicrafts and everything that comes from individual creativity. Craftsmanship is in a phase of rebirth, revival and expansion. I have faith in my work.
