About me

I'm a philosopher that turned potter.

After defending a PhD in philosophy on the topic of the perception of colors at the University of Milano in 2018, I stumbled upon the world of ceramics. It revealed itself to me as a natural and more practical development of my previous theoretical approach. It has allowed me to bring together my interests in the study of perception, food and tablescaping.

I grew up in Slovenia and the studies took me abroad. I currently live and work in Switzerland. 

In 2021 I started to develop my brand of ceramics under the name ZANAMIZO. “Za na mizo” literally translates to “for the table” in slovenian language. I create pieces for fresh and captivating tablescapes.
