‘Fine Giornata’ translates to ‘end of the day’, and ‘Argilla di Fine Giornata’ translates to clay at the end of the day. Apprentices who worked in glass or ceramic studios would often have the opportunity to make their own work with leftover materials at the end of the day and these creations were often called ‘Fine Giornata’...
2020 was strange year, with some exhibitions and residencies cancelled. But it was a year to experiment and try out new ideas and work towards exhibitions that might or might not happen....but some did. The studio was closed to the public for much of the year but thankfully I managed to keep it going.
I have presented many workshops and art camps, for all ages in various places around the world. We have used a variety materials from clay, textiles to found objects to investigate the environment we live in. Art and accessibility is also an important aspect to my practice and I was very fortunate to work on ceramic projects in Rosmini School in Dublin and on the first tactile exhibition at the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramic Museum in Taipei Taiwan.
