Paola Staccioli Living pottery
When you cross the threshold of the workshop you are awash in a feeling of closeness, almost as if you were entering a private, secret place. The objects arranged in the rooms combine small sizes with a powerful, and magnetic presence and a throbbing physicality that come from who knows which recesses of the mind. It’s a fascinating world, filled with poetry and Paola reveals it through pure, enchanting eyes. Unlikely coffee cups some with, others without saucers, delicate coloured bowls, curving teapots that seem to sway on short little feet, and the bold colours on bizarre round shapes saturate our eyes: creativity and function do not always harmonize.
