Flora and fauna, the human form, and, most of all, my clients inspire me. They can choose from images and color schemes from the website or give me a list of items they'd like included in their mural, telling me colors to include or exclude. Creating from a list of images I would never put together, in colors I wouldn't naturally go to allows my creativity to open wide. I can be inclusive to not only the images desired but to the feelings, they inspire.
I am influenced by the Art Nouveau movement, I love the idea of uniting organic and geometric forms into designs that flow and follow the spirit of Art Nouveau to bring beauty to every day. From wall murals and kitchen and bath backsplashes, countertops, sinks, and tub surrounds to the numbers used to display your home address, each hand-made, hand-glazed Bosetti Art Tile project is unique. Using the ancient technique of cuerda seca – a cloisonné-inspired method that mimics the look of mosaic – each tile’s intensely rich ceramic glaze looks so soft it begs to be touched.
I graduated from Pratt Institute in 1982 with a BFA in sculpture, I have spent my life devoted to clay. Over the years there has been a progression from sculpting to pottery to art tile and back again. Throughout it all, I have consistently worked to distill the sensual and spiritual aspects of life into accessible design, image, and easy-to-care-for, durable artwork.
