Terra cruda workshop
held by Monica Bispo

This workshop

Terra cruda is the italian for 'raw clay', and during this workshop we'll deal with the techniques to build a vase (20 cm in diameter) with this material.
Every attendee will create a manifacture with a minimal shape and without cooking.
We'll then go deeper into the Fukuoka method and natural agriculture with hay.

Minimalism and simplicity in form: Monica Bispo expresses the complexity of her personal thought through the essentiality of TheBis lines.

Her works are the result of research in the field of agriculture. They are born in the encounter between natural raw materials and "the straw wire revolution", theory by the Japanese biologist and philosopher Masanobi Fukuoka, which leads to reducing the water impact of the agriculture. Bispo combines this technique with the ancient techniques of construction with lime and sand, the result of intense personal research.

Handmade raw clay pots

It is following the theoretical principles of minimizing human intervention in nature that Bispo gives birth to objects where inspiration comes from the spirit of places and things. In these works nature, history and present materialize into unique pieces, expression of a meditative life.

Monica Bispo biography

Monica Bispo is graduated in Art and Design at Fine Arts Academy of Salvador Bahia e graduated in "Restoration of frescoes and stone surfaces" at School of Restoration ENAIP in Botticino.
In 2014 she started a Master in Progettazione e Conservazione del Giardino e del Paesaggio at Polytechnic of Milan.

Monica is familiar with the different techniques of creation, including the ancient ones. She worked with many materials, not only the most noble and traditional but also those of industrial derivation.

Monica Bispo takes care of the creative process from design to the final realization, It manifests itself in a very simple way: the idea of a new work translates into the immediate modeling of the material to reach the final result, as imagined by a child. The Bis di Monica Bispo
