Italian designer Francesco Feltrin, based in East London, has a practice deeply rooted in the art of making. Descending from a family of carpenters, he brings a practical and experimental approach to his work. With a background in Architecture from Trieste and a master's in Design Products from the Royal College of Art, Feltrin initially focused on woodworking before shifting his attention to resins and ceramics during his studies at the RCA. Currently delving into ceramics with a particular passion, he explores and innovates methods to produce batch-based ceramics.
Alongside his personal practice, Feltrin collaborates with designer Martino Gamper and teaches design at Staffordshire University. His teaching role serves as continuous research, influencing the development of his own studio. Notably, he concentrates on developing new moulding techniques, driven by the necessity for quick decisions with practical applications.
