I stretch it, paint it, fold it, going to the limits of its strength, fragility and transparency.
It often leaves me in desperation because of its fragility.
It leaves me breathless with the feeling of happiness to see its fragile intensity.


light traveling bag - a christmas wish

light traveling bag brooch; a cup for drinking,
a leaf for shadow, a flower for perfume
and two wings to go flying wherever you want!


folded bowls

porcelain bowls
Ø 13 cm., h. 5 cm.
very thin, inside glazed,
the outside oxide paintings are visible from the inside


we live forever...

very thin plate and bowl, porcelain, with incisions, light blue glaze
they are so thin and light that they were almost blown away
by the wind on the Piazza Santissima Annunziata in Firenze...

while the cup at the right has a soft velvet shine.
