Paola Paronetto lives and works in the place in where her roots lie, the Friulian countryside. She acquired a feeling for the medium from her sculptor grandfather, but her real fascination with ceramics was born in Gubbio. Her training continued in Deruta, Faenza, Florence... pivotal locations of ceramic heritage in Italy, where she perfected the main techniques of clay craftsmanship. Curious to experiment with unconventional approaches, she drew inspiration from ancient techniques such as sealed earth and raku, reinterpreting them and making them her own each time. By focusing in particular on the technique of paper clay, in 2010 Cartocci came to life, a multiform collection of slender and intense objects, born in an artisan workshop but infinitely close to art and design. Today her work is renowned and esteemed throughout the world. Her works in paper clay are presented in prestigious design galleries and international museums and are exhibited in the showrooms of some of the most prestigious Italian design companies such as: Zanotta, Moroso, Lema, Lago, B&B Italia and many others.

On the occasion of Design Week 2021, Paola Paronetto presents the exhibition "Metafore -Metaphors" playing with the shapes and colours of nature, from which her art draws inspiration (ADI Design Museum – Compasso d’Oro - Milan, until the 26th of September, free entrance).
