Monica Bispo, Brasilian, graduated in Art and Design at the Academy of Fine Arts of Bahia. In Italy she studied Restoration of Decorated Architectural Surfaces and worked for 10 years as a restorer in churches and private villas in Italy then was invited at the National Museum of Azulejos in Lisbon. Recently she obtained the Master in Planning and Preservation of Garden and Landscape at Minoprio-Polimi Milan. She works in her studio in Brescia, Italy. “I firmly believe that artisanal craftsmanship and invention— another word for design—have to coexist. For me imagining and creating happen close by: they are the natural reaction to an idea. Each one of my pieces are handmade and their design strives for simplicity, I don’t want to impose myself on space or medium, but listen to them. My research spaces from the purity of ancient techniques to the exciting possibilities of new materials… so in my new collection will debut some large ceramic pots, but much lighter than classic ones and yet frost resistant.

Ho sempre un bisogno immediato di avere tra le mani qualcosa di essenzialmente VIVO e poi da li cominciare.”
