This flowing, free-spirited tray, hand-thrown in porcelain, is both informal and resilient, soft in shape but crystalline hard in use. The unique glazes glow with the colours of the Mediterranean, radiating warmth and depth. Laura Benedetti makes pottery to be admired and displayed, and also to be used every day. Each piece awaits food and drink, enriching your table and your home. In a period when so much ceramic art is abstract and conceptual, Benedetti has focused her art on the useful, practical objects that accompany us in our daily lives.
Benedetti’s work is inspired by the vibrant, subtle colours of the Italian coastline in Liguria where she grew up and by the shapes and motives of local architecture. The sea and the sky, the sand and the rock, the flashes of colour from cliff-top wild flowers and the mysterious shades of dawn and sunset are reflected in my multi-layered crystalline glazes. She states: “I believe that pots are meaningful when they are put to use, so that their decorative and artistic qualities illuminate and accompany us, making the routine a little special” Bowls, plates, cups, mugs, jugs and teapots fulfil their functions, each similar, none the same. Tough, dishwasher-proof works of art for everyday use.
