Nico Grigore is a multidisciplinary artist born and based in Bucharest. Fascinated by creativity in all its forms, with a background in journalism and hospitality, she pursues a career in fine art photography before discovering the joy of working with clay in 2020. Persistent in her learning autonomy, she builds the simplest earthen kiln by herself and begins continuous exploring, testing, failing and succeeding with textures, techniques and styles.
And so is Studio Gitane being born: a project that honours the beauty, imperfection, rawness and authenticity of life as it is.
Nico is currently building a secondary studio in the protected area of Danube Delta, a project close to her soul and her wish to explore primitive pottery, natural pigments, silica and minerals.
