Valéria Nascimento creates one of a kind, site-specific installations made up of floral porcelain elements. Nature is the main source of inspiration for her work, its beauty, essence, and ephemerality are rendered in delicate porcelain sculptures. Nascimento cuts and sculpts her shapes before they are fired at high temperatures. Delicate rings, blossoms, petals, cups, and other botanical elements emerge from the kilns, their colors transformed into soft, muted gradient tones of creams, blues, whites, greys, and blacks. Nascimento's installations take the viewer on a meditative journey through botanical scenery, providing an ethereal experience with the weightlessness of the material.
Hand-formed porcelain pieces individually mounted on a charred oak panel.
