I make my ceramic wares on subjects of my creation. All of their modelling, glazing and decorating is handmade by myself with the ancient technique of Italian “maiolica”. They usually arise as collector’s items, but they also have their own functionality. So they stand between creative art and crafts for furnishing. Transferring narration, poetry, mystery and

play into everyday usage objects is my constant mainspring, and ceramics, more than any other means of expression, have all the features I need. I create distinct series and “families” whose inspiration is the enchanted world of fairy tales.
My favorite item is the teapot, where I let fables circulate around the surface by playing with their main

characters, feature elements and objects. When I add legs, dragon-shaped spouts and delicate handles to my teapot, maybe it will hardly ever be used to pour tea, but its invitation to do so does remain. As you look at it, it asks you to turn a plain gesture into something unusual. It will succeed in making that trivial gesture exceptional by telling or suggesting a story.
