Mirta Morigi opened her own “Bottega in the heart of Faenza and for more then forty-five years she has been making ceramics. Mirta Morigi’s Atelier of Ceramic Arts, with its renaissance style, and her talented assistant Morigi’s Girls work in a Contemporary Maiolica. Even today her ceramics is the successful synthesis of the noble past of Faience majolica with the future. Containers of ideas, crossing genres and technique, it is a place of “intelligent hands”, a treasure trove of that genius loci that made Faience known all over the world. Today Mirta Morigi’s ceramics are highly communicative works, with just the right amount of pop, which are above all unmistakable. New experimentations in recent years merge together her current language- strong and powerful- with her great craftsmanship creating highly dignified objects with vibrant and provocative brightly colored chromes, that only majolica can provide. Without relinquishing her typical “lightness” and conceptual irony .
Her works are inspired by nature, specifically by animals like frogs and chameleons because they are biological markers of fragile ecosystems. This typology has been accompanying her ceramics for the past twenty years and has taken her around the world, from Australia to China, India, and Korea to share the experience with other potters or students. As a consequence, some of her works are in private and public collections in Italy, Europe and far beyond. Since from 2011she is a member IAC,International Academy Ceramic di Ginevra. Her Atelier has been published on “the 100 Italian Craftsmen” of Fondazione Cologni.
