Cartocci by Italian ceramicist Paola Paronetto is a series of paper clay bowls, vases and vessels. Hand made through a laborious process, the Cartocci pieces are delicate and unique sculptures with the surface texture of wavy cardboard. The pieces are available in several editions, namely:

Oro pieces are enriched with pure gold, applied with a brush and fixed in a third baking process.

Colore offers two harmonious chromatic scales: vivid colours ranging from yellow to blue and warm natural tones including white, beige and different nuances of brown and green.

Lisci is composed of plain segments in order to emphasize the silhouette and volumes of every item.

Corteccia alternates plain surfaces and segments with different textures.
