I Giunchi Deep Black Vase
Since 2015, Alice Reina becomes biancodichina, a contemporary porcelain studio working on the boundaries between design, craftsmanship and art, between useful and useless. The imagery is drawn from her readings and nature - which she takes time to observe - and it’s guided by her lateral thinking, channeled, just enough, by her studies in architecture. Porcelain almost immediately proved to be the perfect material to give shape to this imaginary: a precious, pure and challenging material of which she gladly supports the anarchist nature. Biancodichina’s work is inspired by its plastic properties and is driven by the curiosity to manipulate porcelain to its limits, reaching unexpected results. She create objects whose shapes, transparency and surface finishes make us doubt about their consistency or even the materials they are made of.
