Everything related to arts&crafts fascinates me; and even more when I get a nice behind the scenes peek. Burnt Sienna was one of my favorite projects I got to see when in Milan this year and deserves a post by itself.
There was much going on with raw material research, certain areas of Ventura Lambrate had this extraordinary lab feel. And that’s was just one of the many reasons why it’s so worth visiting that event.
Laura Daza had been experimenting with the yellow ochre pigment or formerly know by ‘raw sienna’, taking the name of the city of Siena (Italy) where it was widely produced during the Renaissance.
By heating up at several temperature she obtains a series of shades from yellow, red and reddish brown. She applies then the different color pigments to contemporary objects such as textiles and vessels converting handmade pieces in a very refined artisan work.
Laura is a passionate Colombian designer with a solid education at the renown Central Saint Martins College of Design (London), artist, maker and color. You can see more of her works here.
