Humans have made ceramics for a long time, and it is an integral skill for many cultures. Connecting with the earth, making withmy hands, molding and designing for people brings me the most joy in life.

I grew up with parents from Southern Italy. Growing up, we owned all types of figurines and ceramics decorated with lemons and other fruits and plants. Sicilan ceramics are renowned and almost every Sicilian home has a Sicilian Ceramic Head or “Teste di Moro“ on their balcony. Ceramic pinecones are also renowned, yet lesser known. The Sicilian pinecone is a symbol of fertility, wellness, and good fortune

As a ceramic artist, I want my work to celebrate Italian flair and Nordic restraint.
