Rafaela de Ascanio, a painter turned ceramist, references a lot of art historical figures from the Renaissance era and even Tarot card illustrations. This may come from her training in art history and museum studies at the Courtauld, alongside her fine art training at Central Saint Martins. Even though the nude/naked female body has been well represented in Rafaela’s work, it is refreshing to see how it is not done through the male gaze and objectification.
