Carla Kappa

I was born and raised in Italy where I was surrounded by art in every plaza and building.  Using ceramics as a medium, I express my deep appreciation for the art of ancient and modern cultures.  I use coil-built and slab-built techniques in my work, which I finish with layers of acrylic color and mixed media.  Sometimes I don’t cover the purity of the white clay and instead I burnish the entire surface with a pebble, achieving a semi-glossy finish inviting to the touch.  The hand-building process, married with exploration of ever-changing industrial-made color finishes, allows me to create objects that reflect a world of continual change.
