Born in Livorno in 1979, Caterina Zucchi deepened her passion for glass starting in the 2000s, when she began attending various courses of study at the Vetroricerca Glass & Modern institute in Bolzano and the Abate Zanetti glass school in Murano. In 2004 she opened her own studio, Studiozero – glass, where blown and non-blown Murano glass jewels are made and handcrafted. This allows her to start exhibiting, holding practical demonstrations and teaching during fairs, events and days dedicated to the creation of jewels and more.
For glass processing, Caterina Zucchi prefers the blowpipe technique, which allows immediate actions that give vent to the designer’s improvisation and creativity. Therefore, the perfect shape is not sought, but the desire is to create an object in harmony with its surroundings and consistent with the creative impulse.
