I sat down (virtually) with Paola Paronetto, an incredibly talented Designer of handmade Ceramic Objects. Paola is based in Italy. I discovered Paola on Instagram and fell in love with her unique style of ceramics. When I found her my thought was...at last a style & execution of ceramics I had never seen done before!
