Arianna De Luca was born in Abruzzo, between hills and the sea, in a region that harmoniously combines folklore and nature. After studying Industrial Design in Italy and London, where she obtained an MA from Central Saint Martins, Arianna became captivated by ceramics after years dedicated to interior design. She decided to delve deeper into the rich heritage of Castelli's artisans, in her homeland, where she discovered a world of ancient techniques and processes passed down through generations. With a coherent and personal approach, Arianna honours the local traditions and elevates them into the contemporary realm, enriching her work with a distinctive pop, bold, vibrant and colourful character.

To populate the domestic landscape, Arianna shapes her ceramics with bright and vivid colours to accentuate forms and contrasts. Her objects are real characters, with their own souls and personalities. They become cherished presences, enriched with singular details that evoke multifaceted memories. Paying homage to Mediterranean elements and celebrating the Italian heritage, Arianna's objects stand out in the domestic environment by transforming archetypes of tradition into fun, colourful, bold figures. Through the careful selection of brilliant colours and primitive forms, supported by a strong artisanal technique, these special inhabitants emanate a powerful energy that seamlessly translates nostalgia and the past into an innovative and distinctive contemporary decor, never boring nor repetitive.
