"Nature and earth are our daily gifts and my daily
inspiration. I like capturing a moment of life and
portraying it in the dream world of porcelain colors.
I love the challenge of adapting the fantasies inspired
by the world which surrounds me, and shaping them on the
porcelain 'canvas' to form a harmonic unit. The transparency of the porcelain is fascinating to me because it
contributes to the elegance of the finished work of art."
'PORCELLANA' showcases artist Paola Bari's exquisite
painted porcelain plaques and plates. Painted with
overglaze colors, lusters and precious metals such as
gold, silver and platinum, she often extends and
combines the painting with the frame, completing her vision.
Paola began painting on porcelain as teenager in her
native Italy where she received formal training in the
medium. Now a resident of the US, she continues to
refine and evolve her skills studying new techniques,
styles and materials in Italy, Switzerland and the US.
Bari exhibits extensively in regional and global venues
and her work is held in prestigious private collections
throughout the United States and Europe.
