I was born in Switzerland in 1953, but I have Italian roots.

IIn 1978 I opened my own studio and since 1984, after a longer stay in Asia, I have been working with the neriage technique.

Since 2005 I have been using exclusively porcelain from Seto, Japan.

IIn 1992 and 1995 I received work grants from the Canton and City of Lucerne for applied arts.

In recent years I have won various prizes such as the "Bronce Award" in Mino/Japan, the "Silver Award" in Varazdin/Croatia and the "Shimada City Price" in Sasama/Japan.



My work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Egypt, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Holland, Denmark, Croatia and Switzerland.

The two major solo exhibitions at the Yingge Ceramics Museum Taipei, Taiwan and at the Keramikmuseum Staufen, Germany are worthy of special mention.
