Carmelina Greco is a Melbourne based, self-taught Ceramic Artist.
Growing up, art was always around Carmelina. She spent a lot of time creating unique pieces for her friends and family but with a growing family herself, decided to take a break and put her family first. Many years later, during the Australian lockdowns, Carmelina turned back to her passion and Carms Clay was born.
Carmelina draws inspiration from her daily life, including the beautiful beaches and mountains around her home. Her abstract work are sensual, playful and organic, recalling the natural forms of the Australian landscape. Carmelina employs coiling and other hand-building techniques to create her works, using Australian stoneware clays. She leaves her work unglazed, celebrating the colours and textures of the fired clay.
Each piece made by Carmelina is one of a kind and unique. She describes her pieces as quirky as each piece is different and special in its own perfect way.
