A course by Lola Giardino

Teacher Plus
Designer, Photographer, Ceramist, and Digital Art Director

Lola Giardino's relationship with ceramics began in 2011, as a way to distance herself from the computer and find a creative outlet for her ideas. After trying different options, she fell in love with the materials and the technique and decided to start her own brand, NonaBruna, where she enjoys the imperfection of shaping unique, handmade creations.

She sells her pieces through her website and her work has been featured in international publications such as Vogue, Time Out, Freunde von Freunden, and Kinfolk.

NonaBruna is not a private space for creation; Lola invites everyone to her workshop called "Play with clay" to explore their creativity and bring their ideas to life.

Lola defines herself as multifaceted because it is impossible for her to fit into just one category: she is a designer, ceramicist, photographer, art director, web designer, cook, coach, and entrepreneur. And as part of this concept, she is also the founder of Laboratorio Creativo.
