The artisan

Eclectic artist, renown artisan and recognized muralist Pina Monne began her journey into ceramic art in Siniscola, working as a decorator at a local craftsman's studio. Today, she crafts her creations in her own workshop in Tinnura, skilfully shaping clay into objects inspired by Sardinian tradition, artefact of formal synthesis and decorative use. Her painting skills are expressed in potter through the skillful use of colour combinations, vibrant combinations ranging from pure white to polychromy, enriched with gold.

The collection

As part of her production of decorative objects and furnishings, Pina Monne crafts each piece being inspired by the territory, the tradition, the culture and the history of Sardinia. Inspirations intertwine and make reference to Sardinian women, traditional jewellery, and the nature of the sea floor. Ceramics are peculiar, being inspired by primitivism, with direct references to the prehistory of the island.

The technique

Her productions are a result of ongoing research and experimentation, made entirely by hand, shaped on a lathe, decorated with plastic additions, enamels and tin-glazes, embellished with pure gold.
