Alessandra Azzone is the sole owner who works from her studio in the heart of Fitzroy. Alessandra’s produces hand painting and sgraffito pottery pieces, incorporating distinctive decoration marks along with relentlessly evolving shapes and patterns. What makes Alessandra’s pieces unique is the dedicated attention to the finer details and her unique research of aesthetic.
She likes to work with different clay bodies to suit various projects.
Alessandra prefers working with stoneware clay bodies for its durability and strength. Natural surroundings is where she gets inspired. She makes her own colour nuances that are applied onto the green ware state. Then she carves her drawings directly into the surface by hand to give character and originality to each pot. Every piece vary in size, form and mark in order to give uniqueness and reveal the handmade process. Alessandra’s work is sustainable, she sources all the raw materials, clay and tools from local suppliers and recycle her clay by hand.
