Rita Vali creates pottery that combines clean modern form with bold graphic patterns inspired from the richness and diversity around her – landscape, textiles, botany, the microscopic world. Rita draws upon her background in microbiology and applies it to her art practice. She approaches clay in a methodical manner, combining wheel-thrown and altered pieces with slab elements. Rita embraces coaxing form and surface decoration to interplay in a symbiotic way. She also loves color, and the challenge of using it in complementary ways. Creating work that successfully balances form, color, line and pattern is a goal and a thrill Rita never tires of as she is driven by her passion to create.
