I am an Italian artist. I use various languages and techniques to shape my vision. Since 2008, ceramic has become the medium that I mainly use. I come from a historic family that has been involved in ceramics for two centuries in Nove, a small town in the Veneto region, 1 hour from Venice.
My name is Carolina, I was born and raised in a town in the province of Milan. Always creative and art lover. After graduating in Economics, I decided to undertake a path totally different from my studies: I moved to Florence where I lived for eight years and I was able to immerse myself in the goldsmith world.
We are Stefano Bassan and Gianluca Sigismondi (24), we graduated in Product Design in 2019 at the IED European Institute of Design in Milan. We started collaborating during the course of studies concluded with a thesis together. During the conclusion of the thesis we supported the CARA \ DAVIDE studio working on different projects, especially the one for Rinascente. From here was born the right energy that led us to create Finemateria.
I grew up between New York City and the Eolian island of Lipari. I had a creative upbringing and was immersed in both American and Italian culture which had a huge influence on me becoming an artist. I studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and in 2019 I started Idda Studio as a way to bring my paintings to live through fabric.
