"Crescere" is a collection which expresses humanity; how failing is understandable and how we all are imperfectly beautiful.
The working process where clay turns into ceramics is often unpredictable and sometimes the result is not as desired.
Every "Cresceres" frame, underneath the hundreds of ceramic pieces, is slightly unsuccessful sculpture. There can be a small crack or the final finishing was not what was
planned. During the years I have retained these frames while trying to solve how to still utilise the
beautiful forms, because it has not felt right to throw away the sculptures just for the sake of a small mistake.
After numerous experiments, covering the sculptures with small ceramic pieces, each made by hand, and individually attached to the ceramic frame I found the way for a new approach. Every ceramic piece enveloping the sculpture is counted during the process and
the number varies from hundreds to thousands. The new subtle, organic shield gives delicate perspective and at the same time the
sculptures evolved to their current state embodying growth. CRESCERE is latin and means growing.
From now on the "Crescere" series is part of permanent collection and it will evolve over time.
