I am a Brazilian ceramic artist.
My interest in ceramics was awaked during my early school years. I remember being very interested and excited about creating pieces with clay during the art classes. I never forgot when I first tried the wheel - I was about 10 years old. I grew up seeing my grandmother producing bronze sculptures in which she used clay as a mold. I believe these moments introduced me to the art world.
Teen I had the opportunity to attend a summer ceramics course at UCSD Studio (University of California, San Diego), which made me understand the characteristics of working in a ceramic studio.
Later, I participated in a "Terracota Wood Firing Workshop", at the Spannochia Farm in Tuscany - Italy with the american ceramist Don Davis, It was an experience that was very beneficial for revealing me my own creativity. It gave me much confidence to continue my creative work in ceramics.
The years gave me the practice in the ceramic art by attending workshops of known Brazilians ceramists such as Lucia Ramenzoni, Paulo Meireles and Hideko Honma. I continue the endless learning, researching and practicing which I display in my daily work in my studio.
