Nico Conti

Born 1992, Malta

"A profound passion for craft, utilising the timeless and resilient material of the finest porcelain, has inspired me to create dynamic contemporary works of art."

3D printing is often associated with mass manufacture. However, Nico Conti have resolved to present his work as unique pieces reflecting elegance in their composition and narrative. In their finished forms they are not in the least bit reminiscent of the rigidity of the 3D printing machine. The refined curves of the silhouettes lend a traditional and sophisticated quality to the contemporary technology of 3D printing in porcelain, thus enriching both classical and contemporary interiors.

The influence of lace and filigree, two crafts requiring exceptional skill and workmanship, is ever present in the exemplary hand finishing of these highly translucent works of art. Stunning as a pure sculptural form, each piece creates a mesmerising impact as light delicately passes through the porcelain, emitting an exquisite glow.
