Paola Bari is a porcelain painter, exhibiting in the United States and Europe, born and raised in Italy. She began porcelain painting in Milan and studied under various masters to learn different styles and techniques.
She embellishes the highest quality porcelain “blanks,” made by Limoge, Rosenthal and other houses, with overglaze colors and uses European close medium, lusters and precious metals including gold, silver and platinum.
Her pieces need to be fired multiple times, depending on the motif and the variety of materials used.
There is an Italianate exuberance in Bari’s “one off” pieces unlike any other artist working in the medium today.
