We knew it when we first met Luca seven years ago:, this man would go far!
And indeed, as his fame is growing, recognition arrives, this year at Sofa 2013. His series of Porcelain rings has been awarded a prize by David McFadden curator of MAD ( Museum of Art and Design, New York) http://madmuseum.org Congratulations!
Luca has started to teach at La Meridiana seven years ago. Students love him and his generous teaching and do go home with their creations, but more importantly, with a series set of new techniques and ideas that ignite long lasting inspiration.
Topics taught over the years include raku and pit firing techniques, crystalline glazes, paperclay, jewellery and most recently a course designed to learn a load of surface techniques, thoroughly developed by Luca for use on functional or abstract ware, sculpture and jewellery.
