I am Michela Dawe, I am a ceramist, I turn clay into handmade unique pieces
My name is Michela Dawe, welcome to my website!
Using the Coiling Technique, I shape objects both for design and functional purpose. This technique is amazing because it allows to design and create almost all kind of shapes.
I am an art historian based in Rome and I have always worked in the art and tourism field as a tour guide and museum educator. I have always been attracted by all the things that deal with creativity, as art, photography, travelling…and more than anyone ceramic.
The first time I met this material was in 2009 thanks to some friends who signed me to a pottery class as a gift for my degree. Soon clay became my passion and nowadays it has become my job.
I have been practicing for many years and now that my technique is well defined I am starting my own ceramic studio. First of all, to reach this goal I needed to buy many tools and equipment, such as a kiln…..and I did it trough a successful Kickstarter campaign!
Thanks for being here visiting my website. You can find information about How I Work and Ceramic in general on my Blog.
