a life creative

Studio Santa Fiora

Studio
As ever, a joy to be in here designing and making, with the fire roaring. The Siberian front two weeks ago turned the space into a refrigerator but the supersonic engine of fire worked its magic yesterday. We even cooked our lunch on the fireplace.

Afterward I did more shifting around of furniture to make it workshop safe for the summer tourist season. It’s an exercise in ignoring my perfectionist tendencies…it’s a medieval building; there’s not a square or straight wall or even floor within cooee of here!

Much of what I’ve been making lately has been inside at home, mostly with polymer and a couple of oil paintings, as we have the delight of geothermic heating under the floor, ready at the touch of a button. Beats lugging lumps of wood, sometimes.

Website
It’s been a rainy days well-spent on the website and several days photographing and editing stock. I’m pleased to say the Ali Matteini website is now up and running.

Have a look here at www.alimatteini.com

The site is more streamlined, dynamic and accessibly visual than what I had before. As I go through it, I see where it can be made even more so. It’s a work in progress.

Now I just need a clone to keep on top of  the full time job of content updates, social marketing, photography, blah blah blah while I get cracking in the studio.

Workshops

As I mentioned above, I’m planning on doing little workshops for locals and visitors to Santa Fiora, in mixed media jewellery (traditional hand forged, polymer and precious metal clay), as well as marbling and lino printing – mediums that are perfect for adapting for families wishing to do something creative together while they’re on holiday.

Looking at the possibility of a joint exhibition in the summer, too, but more on that down the track.

Drop me a line if you’re interested in jewellery or you’re passing through the area and would like to come and say ciao and tinker in the workshop with me.

To close, here are a few images of what is currently in stock in the shop:
