Pottery is one of the most versatile art forms, and we’ve seen many talented artists develop their unique personal approach to this craft. Federica Massimi is one of them, and she’s spreading positivity through her colorful pottery, which often resembles the most delicious fruits.
Massimi is an Italian pottery artist based in Rome, who discovered her love for the ceramic in 2019. She has a background in interior design and she used her talent to create functional and decorative handmade ceramics, ranging from plates and cups to decorative pieces.
She explored many creative venues before giving pottery a shot, and she immediately fell in love because it perfectly mixes sculpture, painting, and interior décor into one. She enjoys creating amusingly imperfect pieces that convey positive emotions.
“I’m fascinated by the contrast of colors and an imperfect and vibrant type of illustration. So my works appear soft and dreamy. Reality and imagination mix to create well-defined shapes supported by a palette full of bright colors,” she explains on her official website.
Massimi’s Instagram page is now followed by over 40,000 people, and she’s best known for her fruit-inspired collection. This line of pottery features ceramic pieces inspired by figs, kiwis, pears, grapefruit, and lemons, and she also has a separate collection inspired by pumpkins.
