"My approach to ceramic has been raw and pure with an urgent need to create with my own hands after several years of working in the fashion system as a product developer. I love to observe nature and live surrounded by it. Witnessing the changing of the seasons leaves me with many impressions of natural life which I transform into sculptural pieces."
"I like to manipulate the clay, pay attention to its suggestions and live in the present. I often ride the wave of intuition and pleasure and make joyful pieces that spread an idea of beauty. I like to think that they can speak for themselves despite of who I am and where I come from.“
"I also value imperfection which is a distinctive concept both in nature and in ceramics, I like to underline it in my works because it is how I mostly feel as a human being.”
"I use both an electric kiln firing at low temperatures: 950°- 980°- 1020°- and a Raku Kiln firing mainly at 920°- 950°; I like to experiment with layers of glazes and mixing them up with engobes and oxides in order to obtain different colour combinations of which I'm pretty obsessed."
Lucia Zamberletti is an Italian ceramic artist who has shown her work across Europe and in the USA.
