Valeria Nascimento

Valeria’s inspiration is drawn mostly from the natural world and from her native Brazil. Her porcelain pieces depicting different flowers appear to be defiantly weightless. The repetitive sequencing of separate elements forms cohesive sculptural groups. She is principally interested in large-scale installation projects fusing landscapes and natural forms.
Born in Brazil, 1962. Valeria initially graduated with a degree in Architecture in 1985 helping her cement her interest in the fusion between urban landscapes and natural forms. She was introduced to clay a year later and became fascinated by its multiple possibilities for expression and the development of ideas.
