CORINNA SILVA-RODRIGUEZ BONAZZI
Corinna Silva-Rodriguez Bonazzi first began experimenting with ceramics in Lima when she came in contact with it through the practice of her grandmother. Between studying graphic design at Otis/Parsons School of Design, Los Angeles and co-founding the Wolf design studio in Mexico City during the 1980s, she continued her interest in working with clay. Returning to Lima she worked in the area of graphic-screen-printing production while maintaining her ceramic practice, and taking a teaching role at San Ignacio University
Looking to completely dedicate herself to ceramics, in 2005, Corinna founded the Cotto Designs ceramics studio. She quickly began producing specialty dishes for various top national and foreign restaurants, commissioned pieces for artist projects and workshops for young artists.
Working extensively with coils, Corinna likes to lose time and feel how the clay takes her fingers and drives the pieces.
RENZO BOGGIO COUTO
Renzo is a plastic artist who graduated with a degree in industrial design from the Faculty of Art PUCP (2015). His work in ceramics is constantly moving between the design of objects and the plastic expression of matter. In both directions, it seeks to develop products that involve the user in an emotional way, to convey a poetic, ludic, or critical message.
Currently, his work tries to highlight the vulnerability of being versus the future, through relationships of forms, constructions, diverse materials and finishes.
