Officine Dispari is a project initiated by a non-profit organization in the outskirt of Milan, Cooperativa Il Grappolo.
The aim of the project was to create a ceramic workshop where people with disability or in seatch of asylum could be trained and get a work position.
I was asked to start the project and to lead it.
We created a physical space where I could instruct the first two person.
I designed a line of ceramics, following the idea of the slow living.
Each ceramic is handmade, therefore unique.
The project is ongoing and still running.
I am happy to say that Roberto, my first trainee, got a permanent job and he is now able to finish by himself the whole process of making a ceramic piece.
