Studio Sounds Vol.02 from ceramic and jewellery designer, Elise Eales of Di Lunedi.
Home to a range of handcrafted objects, Di Lunedi is the creative manifestation of a lifetime of pottery experience.
Having discovered the complexities and joy of clay as a medium from a young age in her Father’s pottery studio in Northern NSW, Elise found the inspiration for her own project, Di Lunedi, a little farther from home.
Serving up a side of coastal Italy, Elise’s pieces are trademarked by the handpainted crabs, lobsters and Mediterranean motifs that adorn their smooth ceramic surfaces, a style Elise fell deeply in love with during her artist residency in Naples last year.
"I almost always have music playing in the studio. Of late, a lot of Lucio Dalla and Italian '70s which takes me back to Italy but also helps me practice my Italian."
Indeed, music has an inexplicable ability to heighten our recognition of past moments in our lives. “I love that music can take you to a place or person or moment and allow you to experience it all again. When I hear Nina Simone’s ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me’ I remember it being played by a brass band in Florence in the middle of summer or Cat Stevens being played on repeat in my Father's ceramic studio when I was little.”
“It’s those songs that have for whatever reason had an impact that I play on repeat and have the ability to shift my mood or emotions.”
