Maria Licheri, who is deeply in love with her land, has the privilege of being able to express herself by using her "soil". Being engaged is a culture marked with a deep ethnic approach, she would have probably fossilized on trivial themes. On the other hand, she studied with renowned Faenza sculptor Melandri, and was awarded a diploma at the Liceo Artistico di Cagliari, honing her skills as a potter at Giuseppe Rossicone's studio in Milan. He then participated in the most important sector exhibitions in Italy and abroad, being awarded several prizes and quotes in articles that read "her pieces witness a research focused on both shape and colour, highlighting rich motifs and complex elements, making them extremely refined". The experience gained in her long-lasting activity is a sign of her top level craftsmanship.
Her production includes a wide range of furnishing objects but also sculptures and jewellery. A deep professional culture that shines through the bright colours and balanced shapes of bowls, vases, plates, lamp bases; deep meanings that sculptures evoke and tell us; colourful finely crafted jewels. A magical and fascinating world that is a pleasure to experience.
Each object is decorated with precious and unique motifs and techniques, made entirely by hand using clay decorated with enamels, gold and unusual materials, which the artist customizes and transforms.
