It has a been a long time since I’ve written on the blog, I have not been away, but in a rethinking and expanding period.
Already during university my colleagues and I noticed that familiar themes return in our practice cyclically but always at a higher more enriched level every time.
I discover that I am attracted to try new forms of expression only to discover that I had already all the material and tools because I had already tried it in the past, but now, after a few years, the level of consciousness and ability is increased.
So, here is what I have been doing: I have been exploring distressing textiles and machine embroidery to create landscapes out of threads do that they feel ephemeral and delicate, and I have taken to sketch everyday with a series of new tools to find new inspiration and record my life in new ways. In parallel, I have been expanding my glaze collection and trying new effects on porcelain.
Not sure how all this activity will join together but for sure something will leap out of the box.
