A life well lived is one where we follow our dreams and passions, even if, as in the case of Nadia Pignatone, we abandon a life we know and start a new one somewhere else. Nadia seems ecstatic to have made the move back to Italy after 20 years in New York and now lives and creates happily with daughter Gemma Minxin and life partner Fausto Pellegrini. And her sheer pleasure in life and work shows in every one of her limited edition pieces. Above: Stupa collection, a set of interlocking vases that form a sculpture when assembled or three individual vases when separated.
Asian influence taken to a whole new dimension in that the pattern is not only inspired by but actually made of vintage kimonos.
One of my favorite pottery collections achieves such perfect asymmetrical balance . This is Morandi Mood, one of the most accomplished pottery compositions of color, hue, form and texture we’ve seen in a while.
Tinted cast porcelain with unfinished edges, available in six shades. “As is” is the name of the collection and it’s good enough for us Nadia.
