Artist: Alessandra Taccia is an Italian artist and self-taught ceramist working and living in Cambridge. She studied Fine Art at Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti, Genova and takes inspiration from ancient artifacts from the Mediterranean area and the Far East, as well as Zen philosophy and Theosophy. Alessandra uses a muted and restrained palette in her ceramics and paintings, hues and tones which are drawn from memories of familiar natural and urban landscapes. Alessandra’s restrained approach results in the concise expression of ideas.
