    Made me say "WOW" when I opened the box! Beautiful feature now on my favourite windowsil. Not only is Denis' work incredibly practical, it is simply stunning. The glazing effect is magic. Cant imagine how much time went into making this. Arrived very fast and so carefully packaged. Thank you Denis.

    Seven stars out of five! So much work has gone into this and I feel lucky to be able to own it. The colour and glaze is incredible, way more vibrant than any photo can do justice. Brightens up my room and a joy to look at and handle. Arrived so quickly and carefully packaged. Thank you Denis.

    I received my egg within two days of ordering and was absolutely delighted with it. It was a lot bigger than I thought it was going be and I will be ordering more very soon.

    The item was very well packed and was speedily dispatched. I highly recommend this seller. Many thanks.

    It was very easy to communicate with the seller. I fell in love with this bear at first sight and was very happy to receive my bear as soon as possible. in reality it is even better than in the photo. Highly recommend for those who are thinking about a gift or looking for a good thing for their own collection. High quality. Thank you so much.

About DiLucaCeramics

On Etsy since 2014

Creating new things has been a passion for me since I began making wooden toys as a child at home in Urbino, Italy. It was a natural choice for me to study industrial design at University in San Marino where I developed an interest in ceramics and began to discover the possibilities of combining clay with other materials and using specialist firing techniques to produce contemporary ceramic art.

While a student at university I practiced daily and realized a number of projects utilising clay as my raw material. One specific project was a vocal resonator that was exhibited on the stand of Casabella in the Salone del mobile Milano expo.
I continued my studies with a master degree in Product Design at Università Iuav di Venezia ("higher institute of architecture of Venice").

Studying under the master potter Roberto Aiudi I began exploring experimental techniques and built my own Raku Kiln to refine my Raku firing technique that produces a distinctive cracking effect in the final glaze. The spirt of Raku embraces the 4 elements: earth, fire, water and air and allows you to create objects as unique as nature itself creates.

I am continually refining and developing my skills in Raku, Naked Raku, which allows you to create amazing patterns; Raku Dolce, the traditional coral clay method from Arezzo; Saggar Firing, using a container to protect the piece during firing; Obvara Firing or Baltic Raku, that uses flour and yeast during firing; Horse Hair decoration; and Stoneware.

I have a fully equipped studio with Potter’s wheel, electric kiln, the Raku Kiln and plaster models, in Forest Row, East Sussex, in the heart of the beautiful Ashdown Forest. The colours, materials and atmosphere of the Forest provide me with colour and texture influences from the countryside for my pieces.

Each piece I create is unique. The fusion of Italian design influences and traditional ceramic techniques adapted for contemporary tastes results in highly individual items for your visual enjoyment.

I produce a wide range of pieces from functional items such vases, lamps and bowls to art ceramics and sculpture. My sculpted face impression masks have been very well received and much talked about at ceramic exhibitions and shows.

I am able to accept commissions, and in my website there is what I have produced.

I regularly exhibit my work around England.

I am more than happy to share my experience with other ceramicists. I run workshops for small groups or one-to-one here in Forest Row and I was doing regularly workshop in Italy.
