Cortona Ceramics

A flying visit to a friend in Tuscany over ten years ago became a defining voyage for Canadian artist Jennifer Perez. Inspired by the charm of the people, the countryside and the colours, she moved there soon after. Through her company, Ivo Angel, she now collaborates with potters from Cortona and neighbouring Tuscan and Umbrian villages whose experience with clay stretches back years. 

“These artisans did not become artisans; they were born artisans,” Jennifer says. “They live and breathe their work as the tradition runs deep – in many cases, the skill has been passed down through generations.” 

Ivo Angel’s terracotta pieces for TOAST are traditionally crafted by Cortonese artisan Giulio Lucarini, who has been working with clay since he was 18 and describes it as his “natural calling.” They are finished with a hand-painted splatter effect, inspired by antique ceramics from the region.
