Artists / Designer
The renowned creative, who works with the world's leading design houses, has signed an agreement with the Vicenza company, for which she has designed, after the moon collection, an other collection ispired by the dragonfly. This animal's silhouette has been featured on lamps, vases and a variety of other decorative objects that form an exclusive limited, numbered edition of ceramic artworks, bringing new colours and a fresh touch to the Dal Prà range.
Carla Tolomeo was born in Pinerolo and began painting in Rome, where she moved with her family. She combined painting with classical studies, and began to frequent the studios of Guttuso, Gentilini, Attardi and Pirandello. From that moment her artistic carreer in the field of design begins.
The materials she uses to shape these creations are those we find in any craftsman's workshop: wood, iron, rubber, resinate, ceramic. The artist has also paid particular attention to the choice of fabrics and braiding. Each object is the result of a combination of shapes and a mix of colours. Carla Tolomeo has always worked with leading fashion and design houses, such as Missoni, Hermès, Blumarine, Sicis, Costa Lines, Linea più and many more.
Faithful to the history but always with a cutting edge style, Ceramiche Dal Pra signed a very important collaboration with the well known American designer, Terri Pecora.
Her work for Ceramiche Dal Pra on lamps is the perfect union of precious material and contemporary master design.
Californian, Terri Pecora studied Fashion Illustration at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and transferred to Italy in 1988 to attend the Product Design Masters Program at Domus Academy in Milan. In 1991 she established her own studio, working with various European companies such as Art & Cuoio, Bisazza, BRF, Marco Bicego, Dom Ceramica, Edra, Emmebi, Montblanc. She has worked in many sectors: furniture design, interiors and exhibition installations, art direction and graphics, fashion accessories, products for the home, accessories, wall coverings and fittings for the bathroom.
