About RINAdal1965

Sales 150
On Etsy since 2015

Many years have passed...

Rina was the first name given to the artistic activity of my mother Vittoria Valmaggia, known especially due to her one of a kind dolls in traditional costumes typical for different areas of Sardinia, with meticulous stitchings and miniature jewelry that merged various art techniques: ceramics (hands and faces), tailoring and goldsmithing. Other creations were made entirely in ceramics and included small sculptures inspired by faces of Sardinian women, small animal figures, floral patterns and varied plates with marine motives. As a stylist and seamstress, she designed and created the first modern version of Sardinian costumes. In her shop in Cannigione opened in 1982, still owned by the family, she created the most important dolls, some of which donated to pope John Paul II, the Nobel Peace Prize winner Mikhail Gorbachev, Italian president Francesco Cossiga, Lady Diana, Princess Caroline of Monaco and other Italian and international celebrities. My mother died because of brain cancer on 31st October 2009 taking away most of her knowledge related to Sardinian culture and crafts.

Today, me and my wife stabilized ourselves in Sardinia trying to give new life to our artistic activity. Grown up in my mother's laboratory of artistic ceramics, I graduated in marketing graphics and worked as a web designer. My wife has been painting since her childhood and created small polymer clay figures. Today we dedicate our free time to ceramics and every piece getting out from our fantasy is entirely handmade. Materials and colors are zero-mile and as much natural as possible.
