After visiting a two-month course at ‚La Meridiana International Ceramics School‘ in Tuscany, she decided to pursue this beautiful craft and have her own studio.
„Forming different shapes out of a piece of clay is the most satisfying thing for me.” – Cristina Fagnani
What‘s your name and where do you consider home?
My name is Cristina Fagnani and I‘m from Zurich, Switzerland.
What made you start doing pottery?
The clay itself! I was experimenting with clay during my studies at ZHdK and I litterally fell in love with this material. After this I started to attend several pottery courses on the wheel and I ended up doing a two-month ceramic course in Tuscany, Italy.
A person who inspires you?
There is no particular or famous person. But mostly friends and family who pursue various interesting goals.
Where do you get your inspirations from?
From everyday life.
Favorite way to relax?
While cooking. I love to cook. While I’m cooking I start to relax. Almost the same effect hits me while doing pottery.
What‘s your favorite go to spot in your city?
On the banks of the Limmat.
I love strolling along the Limmat and jumping into the water for a refreshing swim.
