The flower that grows from the stone is a symbol of hope...
These floral sculptures breath life into the clay with lively transformation. Winding, blooming botanical sculptures; each petal pressed so thinly that light passes through the translucent porcelain.
This work tenaciously challenges the fragility of ceramics and derives strength from its organic forms.

...the women in our family
have “mani d’oro”
(hands of gold)
When I was a little girl, my grandmother taught me how to make traditional Italian bread sculptures. She was the first of her family to immigrate from a small town in Italy to Toronto, and practicing these traditions gave her strength. It was during this time that I began to understand my own cultural identity and start my journey towards sculpture. My grandmother gave me this passion for craftsmanship and Italian art that brings my work to life today. She would tell me,
" you can make whatever your heart desires because the women in our family have “mani d’oro” (hands of gold)."

IN THE STUDIO
I run my studio practice in Toronto, producing both functional ceramics and sculpture.
I want to invite you into my studio for a closer look at my process working with porcelain and ceramic materials.
Every day starts with a cut of clay - my job is to find life within it.
Trained in Florence Italy, I work with a variety of gilding techniques used in sculpture, framing, furniture, and wall surfaces. My Sculpture and Design Studio offers custom painted finishes and gilding services in precious metal including 24 kt gold, moon gold, silver, palladium, as well as copper, faux gold and aluminium
Liana Tarantini runs her studio practice in her private studio within the GTA.
