NELISE OMETTO, ceramista, escultora e pintora / a brazilian ceramist, sculptor and painter

 

Nelise Ometto started her ceramic training with the artist and ceramist Megume Yuasa in the early eighties. The six-year-learning process at Yuasa studio gave her not only the expertise to explore clay (making, drying, glazing, firing), but also developed the necessary skills to deal with passion, challenge and frustration in art clay work, having the chance to refine her artistic and critical eye.

Early, the creations were purely artistic: totems, murals and installations. In the nineties, she began to produce pottery tableware, having today more than 200 different items designed and manufactured in her studio, where works 6 employees all trained by her.

Observing the various phases of Nelise Ometto work, we realize it follows a cyclical pattern, going from an artistic expression to tableware and, than, again back to the most pure art. Every time this cyclic movement appears, there is an increase in quality and the symbiosis takes place in her work. Its elements decompose and transform themselves into new ones which later transfer their artistic beauty to tableware again.

This time, the unrest of this ceramist promotes her back to the art world through paintings herein presented. These paintings combine graphic drawings and ceramic fragments for color and movement structures. Nature is always her main topic, with trunks and crowns of trees painted under wide range of angles. And much more than that, keeping the ceramist cycle of creation in a permanent stage of rebirth.
