Agalis Manessi:

3D creatures and figures

Coin Street Community Builders group

Agalis Manessiís work lies within the tradition of maiolica and celebrates this rich historical medium through many diverse influences ranging from the sophistication of Italian Istoriato dishes through to the simplicity of humble folk wares. She strives for a poetic mastery through pictorial representation, trying to retain a freshness of palette that belies the difficulty of the process. Subject matter is derived from portraits, figures and animal studies drawn directly from life or inspired by characters from paintings in museum collections; a fusion of the observed and imagined.
