Born in Etna’s slopes, after graduation in 2003 she attends a course in “expert in working and craftsmanship and ceramic process of lava stone” where she learns to shape it, to glaze it, to paint it and to bake it at very high temperatures in special kilns.
Then the idea came!
Nearly always lava stone is used for flooring, architecture, furniture, design items and also jewels, although with spartan processing.
Why has no one ever thought of working it and process it as a precious stone, giving it added value thanks to the artisan manufacture?
Therefore, after educational path in Valenza, where she achieved various qualifications, among them gems cutting technique, goldsmith-designer, plus significant work experiences, she decided to go back to Sicily.
