At The Ode To we are always curious to learn more about creativity and artistry, so we asked Camille Romagnani to tell us a little bit about her life, her art and her sources of inspiration.
What do you call your series of artwork?
– The series is called "Couleurs du Ciel," meaning 'colors of the sky' in French. It reflects my exploration of sky colors applied to various ceramic shapes.
What technique have you used?
– I use faïence clay and various glaze mixes. My process primarily involves hand sculpting, and I apply glaze as if I'm painting.
What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?
– I draw inspiration from natural elements, especially the sky, for this series. Additionally, I collect various natural items like rocks, branches, and photographs for reference.
Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?
– I am of French and Chinese descent, originally from France. I studied industrial design, specializing in both objects and textiles, at ENSCI Les Ateliers in Paris. Despite my design background, I naturally gravitated toward artistic work, with a fluid boundary between the two disciplines. My creative process is tactile and artisanal, reflecting my passion for craftsmanship. My studio, where I create my art, is now based in Paris.
How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?
– Colorful, organic, handmade.
