From opera singer to mountain ceramist

My name is Mandy Brissi and my visual artist name is LILA. I have always been in a constant quest for the perfect vibration. This quest first led me to become a professional opera singer for many years. And this all over the world. For a decade now, I have been living in the mountains of the Mercantour National Park where I come from.

My quest for vibratory perfection has indeed led me to move away from vocal pyrotechnics to seek the deeper one of silence. Today's society is often full of discordant and intrusive noises. A boiling not conducive to creation. That's why I decided to get closer to more organic and natural vibrations. Only then could I hear again. First, the song of the wind in the leaves of the trees. Then, that of the leaves of the birch which resembles the song of the spring or the river. I could hear insects swarming on sunny days and raptors in the air. Deer in the mating season and wolf hunting. It was then that I was finally able to find the most accurate vibration ever. That of the song of the earth and nature. True original source of my animal ceramics.
