Growing up in the city of Faenza, Italy I was completely surrounded by the beauty and light of art and ceramics. Ceramics was my finest art teacher.

The International Museum of Ceramics was down the street from my childhood home. It was my playground. Growing up and learning about light and color and texture became second nature. I would make bowls and bring them home to my parents. It was fun.
I love colors. Why not incorporate the history of my hometown of ceramics and my artwork by creating something happy, fearless & authentic. I like the idea that you can touch them, feel them and use them daily. You can’t do that with a painting. It brings living my life as an artist to a complete circle of happiness.
Venturing into a new avenue with ceramics is very exciting especially because it brings a different audience from my painting world. I am incredibly honored to debut my ceramic collection at Bergdorf Goodman this summer. Love, Marco
