Laura De Benedetti

About Laura

Laura De Benedetti started her career in ceramics making domestic ware, such as cups, teapots, plates and bowls to enhance the daily experience of food sharing.

Her main inspiration is the landscape of her home of origin in Northern Italy, which informs her choice of materials. She uses hard, white porcelain to create the “soft” forms of her vessels and the fluid crystalline glazes produce her rich surfaces and pools of intense colour.


My Work

The unique style of Laura De Benedetti has captivated lovers of ceramic art all over the world. Her flowing, free-spirited forms, hand-thrown in porcelain, are both informal and resilient, soft in shape but crystalline hard in use. Their unique glazes glow with the colours of the Mediterranean, radiating warmth and depth. Laura’s pots are to be admired and displayed, and also to be used every day. Each piece awaits food and drink, enriching your table and your home.

In a period when so much ceramic art is abstract and conceptual, Laura has focused her art on the useful, practical objects that accompany us in our daily lives. She believes that pots are meaningful when they are put to use, so that their decorative and artistic qualities illuminate and accompany us, making the routine a little special. Bowls, plates, cups, mugs, jugs and teapots fulfill their functions, each similar, none the same.
