Bianca Pintan is a ceramicist and sculptor born and raised in Brazil, now based in the coastal town of Byron Bay, Australia. Following a captivating inner-call and intuition she began her journey into creating art through the medium of ceramics. Having always worked hands on, the art of ceramics came naturally to her, as though her hands had memorised these movements before.
As a self-taught artist Bianca uses this to her advantage, being open to receive inspiration rather than searching for it, exploring the realm of ceramics with a playful curiosity. Her pieces are all hand-built, using her own unique techniques. Bianca allows the clay to guide her into whatever shape is wanting to be birthed, stretching the clay to its limits, creating an exceptional relationship with her medium. Playing with the textural elements of shape and light, her pieces tell a unique story each time you view them.
“I love intuitively experimenting with the clay, stretching it to its limits, working with its natural form, witnessing it transform into a sculptural piece that interplays the elements of light, texture, colour, and depth”
