Pietro Sanna

Born in Sardinia, now working and living in York, Pietro has always been interested in art in all its forms. During his degree studies in Contemporary 3D Craft at York College, he started to focus on
the use of the ceramic medium. Pietro now creates hand built and slip cast vessels as carriers for wide and broad types of narratives; his practice taking inspiration from experimentation and an understanding of clay and the possibilities it offers during the act of making. Thus, Pietro uses coil built vessels to create uneven and asymmetrical shapes, creating layered and abstract visual narratives. He also makes slip cast vessels in multiples to play with the deconstruction process and the simplicity of shape and colour. Pietro also uses the ceramic material and ceramic vessels as a medium for his fine art paintings and to explore the possibility of the 3D space. Since graduating, Pietro has taken part in a number of selected exhibitions.
