Paola Paronetto has developed a bold and personal technique that gives to her production its singular look. Pieces of cardboard are covered in ceramic and used to build what will become, once fired, vases, lights and sculptural objects. The cardboard, when cooked, is consumed and disappears, leaving just a wavy print on the surface of those organic objects.

Letting to this process its full potential, the resulting shapes are built without a mould and are therefore all unique. Paola Paronetto, native of the village of Pordenone, in the Italian region of Veneto, is inspired by shapes from the Nature, such as the cactus. She creates herself the colour of the glaze she applies to her pieces. The result is a peculiar and delicate universe, where coincidence and imperfections blend in a unique drawing and elegant texture.
