Laura de Benedetti
This beautiful White & Blue Porcelain Cup Set is hand made by the Italian ceramicist Laura Benedetti. Laura’s work takes inspiration from the vibrant colors, subtle tonal shifts and distinctive forms of the Ligurian coastline where she grew up. While local architecture and cultural motifs inform her style, it is nature that plays the biggest role.
Her stunning multi-layered glazes all reflect the sea and sky, sand and rock, vibrant wildflowers and stunning dawns that fuel her passion.
Laura Benedetti gained fame with her project “100 Teapots”. Taking inspiration from the Japanese master Takeshi Yasuda, Laura explored the infinite range of possibilities open to the ceramicist. The dazzling range of pieces she created played with the way in which she crafted each element of the teapot. Each piece was thus unique, and the ensemble became a celebrated work of art. As such, Laura exhibited the whole set at Art in Action in 2012. They have since become sought-after collector’s items. Laura, meanwhile, has gone from strength to strength.
Laura’s work pioneers the use of porcelain – a notoriously tough and rigid material – in forming flowing, free-spirited pieces. She approaches each piece individually, seeking to find its soul within the raw material. Because of this, each cup in this set is unique and one of a kind. The rippling textures, gentle asymmetries, and sensuous curves distinguish these pieces from anonymous, factory-made ceramics. As a result, they are all infused with the individual, unique spirit that Laura created them with.
Laura says: “I believe that cups are meaningful when they are put to use… their decorative and artistic qualities illuminate and accompany us, making the routine a little special”. Each individual item of homeware has its discreet function, but only special ones such as these rise above and beyond that.
Tough, long-lasting, dishwasher safe works of art, for everyday use.
