Paola Masi

Paola Masi

Hometown: Rome, Italy

Based in: Barcelona, Spain

Paola Masi throws ceramic pieces on a kick wheel, then molds, shapes and often opens them so that light can penetrate inside.
She is fascinated by the container as a metaphor for the human condition ,starting from the pure form in the utilitarian context to the sculptural and abstract.
Her work thus mirrors an intuitive and intimate process: the study of form and her love of the unseen, of that which is contained in form and transcends it.
The ceramic process becomes, for the artist, life’s laboratory : a re-encounter with the nature of each element.
The turning of the wheel, its dance.
The result is works in motion, changing shapes which are thrown, sculpted, finished with glazes of her own fabrication and finally fired at high temperatures.

Paola Masi In The Studio

"“I am not interested in creating something new. Mine is rather the search for the Universal: the container of that nothing which holds everything, Akasha ( Sanskrit word for ether). It is a slow process, opposed to the frenetic world that surrounds me”"

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

”The works are born turning on the wheel. It is a constant search for balance between the thickness, the movement and the weight of the piece. There is a certain fragility about these works, and I mean it in every way: once they are cut open there is no going back. Many fall and brake in the kiln. Some just move, as if dancing. It’s the beauty of the unknown for me. It requires surrendering to the nature of the elements, while firing the kiln at 1280o C. But that is the magic, the real power of ceramics.
