Naida C. Castel
Naida C. Castel emerges from a deep desire of self-expression, hailing from the most unpredictable instants its founder experiences, to later be transformed into pieces filled with meaning. Eluding conventionalisms, her work is conceived as unruly and contemporary objects which resonate with everyday life. At times, from her studio, others from around the globe, she experiments with pieces that invoke and explore the spontaneity of forms, permanently trying to display the honesty of the material and its process.
