Emilie Lisi

Lombardia, Italy | Artist

Emilie Lisi moves between ceramics, art, design and embroidery with attention to the concreteness of the object and, at the same time, to the relational value beyond form.

A deep half-breed that the artist obsessively molds and shapes terracotta inside and out, alternating refined craftsmanship and a restless intuition for the invisible core of objects.
