“I have always been in love with the simple, the essential and the beauty of the imperfect.”
Ceramic artist and sculptor Bianca Pintan draws inspiration from the imperfections in nature and from her local, rugged Australian landscape. Born and raised in Brazil, today she creates her renowned ceramic pieces from her small studio on the shores of Byron Bay, where she watches the waves crashing on Talon Beach.
And in that studio, located close to the Arakwal National Park, she envisions and then creates her ceramics organically using two different types of clay—mid fire and stoneware. It all happens for her naturally, from the forming of the raw, rich Australian clay to the shaping, carving, sanding, firing and glazing of the pieces.
