I was born in Italy in 1983, my parents both artists and makers influenced me to study architecture and I chose Venice University IUAV.
After University I moved to Beijing where, despite the pollution, I could breath fresh dynamic and international air.
Back to Italy I worked in Milan, mostly in interiors projects in close contact with specialised artisans and manufacturers. I then moved to London to work for Foster+Partners architects .
Here I started experimenting with ceramics as a member of The Kiln Rooms in Peckham.

Lobati collection can be described as a wheel throwing exercise aiming to a smooth round shape where all the outcomes are broken and assembled into something different that honours the original effort but also explores the possible metamorphosis given by grouping.
There is something intriguing about two curvy vessel sitting together, forming a space in between them.
Both porcelain and crank are mixed with volcanic sand and wheel thrown into curvy vases.
A transparent glaze is used for the porcelain vases to enhance the characteristics of the material, while the crank vessels are dip into a grey glaze with either green or blue variations sprayed on top.
These porcelain lamps are made by carefully assembling various wheel thrown pieces together.
The light warms up the ceramic surface and passing through the round openings projects circular shadows.
Meggie's Cancer Care Centre in Leeds recently commissioned four planters to host some of their lushest tropical plants. The vases design aims to unison the architectural finishes and natural materials of this welcoming and soulful space.
