Bottega Krua is a small italian brand of handmade and handpainted ceramic pet bowls.
Bottega Krua was born in 2010 and behind it there is Arianna Piazza. I know it seems incredible, but I do everything in my little business:
- pottery making
- photo shooting
- customer service
Believe me it is hard, but I love my job so I can handle it, because impossible is nothing! I am a one woman show.
I studied art and ceramics at the high school and later I got a master degree with honors at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, Italy during 2010.
I’ve been selected and I won different art prizes in Italy and around Europe. Also I’ve been selected in group and solo exhibitions in my country. During 2013 I won an art residency for one year in Venice, at Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation.
