The artisan

Arianna Leoni is a passionate and creative artist. After getting her degree in public administration, she looked for something different, something more artistic, and she run into pottery: by starting this journey she decided, at a very young age, to create the Ceramiche Leoni Arte brand. Her parents, both artists and professors of art history, had a critical role in her choices. In her charming studio located in the old town of Luras, in Gallura, the young artisan crafts her own productions. Collections of original and unique items, ceramics created and painted entirely by hand, sold with a guarantee certificate that attests to the uniqueness of each individual product, also available at best furniture and crafts stores of the island.

The collection

The Leoni Arte creations are inspired by the Sardinian countryside, the farm and pastoral world, but also by the surprising elements of the marine world. All lamps, vases, bowls, shaped as coloured spiky sea urchins, dreamy jellyfish and beautiful corals, are crafted with great technical skill and amazing expressive power. They introduce us to a world where an art object becomes an element that can surprise and move, creating identity and bringing people closer to tradition.

The technique

Ceramics are made and painted entirely by hand using traditional pottery techniques. Lathe, rolling, coiling. All techniques are used and decorated with enamels or slips, chosen according to the project to be undertaken and the emotions that the artisan wants to communicate. They all feature great skills and expertise in manual shaping, which provide a peculiar expressiveness to each object, turning it into a unique piece.
