Biography

Anna Maria Di Ciommo's early career in architectural design evolved into designing and creating jewellery (Angels: pendants, rings and bracelets; The Mother Goddess: pendants).

Her work moved into a more intuitive phase and became art. She produced small sculptures that can be worn as pendants and rings. They are all unique pieces requested by clients who recognise in them a part of themselves and wear them with pleasure (unique pieces: Homage to the Essential in Nature).

The process of creation is itself an experience. Anna Maria allows herself to be led by the material, its textures and natural properties, to discover its essential energy. She continually explores new media and materials.

Recently she has switched from small pieces to larger sculptures, from metals (copper, brass, silver and gold) to clay. She sculpts the clay forging a bond with the Earth and its heartbeat: her latest precious artworks: First Food, Girl Embracing the World, and Guardian of the Earth featured in the exhibition "White", promoting Made in Italy, in Brisbane, Australia this year.

Anna Maria recently joined the art initiative Arte da Mangiare, which is working towards Milano Expo 2015.

As an experienced artist she now helps emerging artists gain exposure through curation.
