Ceramics by Alessandra Romani, feat. Giulia Cavallo Illustration by Giulia Cavallo Underwater In my approach to Alessandra's artwork, I decided to paint everything with brushes, approaching each stage with affection. I brought to her piece a dark, marine scenery that I really appreciate. I thought that recreating seaweed at the bottom of the sea could dialogue well with Alessandra's work. I wanted something soft. I really enjoyed the process, it was a good challenge that arrived at the right time. Artist Statement (Giulia Cavallo): I always drew on paper. Watercolor paper. With gouache, pencil and Chinese ink. I have a passion for paper ... But last summer, I decided to try acrylics. And a new world opened up for me. I create my colors from the primary colors. For me, preparing colors is one of the most delicious parts of the process. Next is to slide the brush on the surface and play with the colors that came out. About this collection: In this collection, I invited some artists that I admire to draw over my ceramic pieces. It all started during the first lockdown. One day, my friend Chris, who lives next door, saw through my studio window, some of my shelves, full of repeated pieces, and asked me: “can I paint one of these? ” These repeated pieces are tests, carried out during the execution of the work “Jarra Viva” for Calouste Gulbenkian museum store in Lisbon in 2017. Like any test, they are wasteful because of the small defects in the glaze, thickness, finish, etc. But Chris' approach made me think "why not? Why not extend to other artists?" This experience was very enriching. It was interesting to observe how other artists look at my work, what they feel, what moves them, what story they want to tell over this ceramic shape. Different personalities, different life experiences, different emotions. Thus the “Second Skin” collection was born. Each piece gains a new skin by the hand of each artist. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Master’s degree in Interior Design, discovered the passion for ceramics in the early 2000s. In 2002 divided in ceramic studies and practice. In 2015, founded the Inspired by Arts project. In this project Alessandra allies her ceramic world to modern art still-life paintings. "My work can be defined as being inspired by modernist paintings I love. Behind each piece, there is my interpretation of an object, once represented in canvas, to which I try to give a new meaning, in a contemporary context, making it part of our daily lives."
