"Eva's sculptures are anthropomorphic and otherworldly at the same time. The beauty they radiate is soulful, thought-provoking, evoking a dreamlike experience..." - Sara Ille @iLLEARTS

B 002 Obey - Porcelain 10 x 8 in.

“I am a self-taught sculptor working with ceramics. I chose this material as my medium because I find it extremely fascinating for its very intrinsic quality: It is alive, delicate and it responds to the handmade work with its own memory. Ceramic needs to be understood and is not possible to have complete control over it; it doesn’t bend to the mere caprice of the artist, it directly responds to external climatic changes therefore the result will always be unpredictable.

This behavior so intimately connected with the natural elements, not allowing complete ownership of the material, allowed me to remain humble, meditative and connected with the energy of things that surround me.

My heritage is a main theme in my creative process: I use as reference the corals, the shells and sea-urchins of the Sardinian sea, the unique design of ancient jewelry that still nowadays decorates our traditional costumes. I get inspired by the distinctive shape of the typical sweets of my hometown, Nuoro.”
