Antonia Campanella is a local ceramicist with a refined and rough hand. She has simultaneously mastered making glass objects look rough and broken–but still planned and polished. They balance being roughly pretty and elegantly rugged.
Campanella is inspired by urban and industrial forms, architecture having a very large influence on her. This manifests itself in broken brick vases that look like they were ripped from a Downtown building. There is an element of street art to some as she scrawls faces and patterns onto the side of objects. Most of her what she makes is in clay and oftentimes she slip casts found objects to further draw the outside world closer to what ideas she has within.
There is great form to her pieces. The mixing of the personal touch and urban hustle undoubtedly is the root of her making in such a rough and refined way. See more of her work here and keep an eye on her store here, which we imagine will be restocked soon.
