Luciana Grazia Menegazzi In The Studio

"All my creations are made in Paper Clay porcelain. It is a mixture of porcelain and paper in the percentage of 2/5% . The paper in the mixture allows greater lightness, transparency and new shapes. The manufacturing techniques range from casting in disposable cardboard molds, to be applied by brush on a balloon, to the filigree. All pieces are fired at 1260 C. They are all unique pieces."

Describe your creative process.

All my work concerns fragility and lightness. It's a non conceptual approach that investigate the chances of the material leading to its extreme consequences. I use only porcelain paper clay that I prepare on my own adding paper to the clay. I use different techniques as slip casting in disposable cardboard molds, brushwork on a balloon, very thin slabs, filigree...
