Sinuous and always unique shapes

Vania has the ability of listening: she listens to the clay and its suggestions of ancestral and modern shapes, and she listens to people, translating emotions, feelings and dreamlike memories into ceramics. She ranges from earthenware free slip casting, in order to create sinuous and always unique shapes, to enamel decorations, from drawing with pencils on ceramics to copper, gold and slicks on stoneware. Architecture, her first love, is as present in her art as femininity, an innate gift of hers. Her hands are guided by the humility of someone who knows there is always something to learn, both from clay and from other people, almost as if her craft was a precious gift, to be treated with love and respect.
