SHOP LOCAL IN VENICE: DANIELA’S POTTERIES & WORKSHOPS
SUPPORT LOCAL ARTISANS.
Few people know that in Venice, the art of ceramics has been developed along with the making of glass and mosaics. The history of this art tells a lot about everyday life, customs, and trading in a city of merchants between East and West.
The potteries shown in this photo are potteries handmade in Venice by Daniela Levera. Daniela is a young ceramic designer and crafter born in Brasil, grown in Chile and based in Venice since 2008.
