Pordenone has always had a strong tradition of ceramic production, as shown by the historical Manifattura Ceramica Galvani. Paola Paronetto has developed her own personal interpretation of all the ancient techniques of pottery by researching sealed clay, raku firing and paper clay techniques.

Paola Paronetto was born in 1965 in Pordenone, where she still lives and works. She experimented and matured her knowledge of pottery in Gubbio, continuing then her studies in Deruta, Faenza, Florence and Vicenza. She teaches in Certaldo at the International School of Ceramics La Meridiana and collaborates in the development of interior design projects with architects and designers.

‘I believe that the creative process begins before you are even aware of it. To me, it is like having sudden visions that I can’t wait to recreate in real life.’ Paola Paronetto
