Talia Silva is a multi-disciplinary designer/artist based in Toronto, Canada. She received a BDes, Major in Environmental Design from OCAD in 2008.  Fascinated by geometry and its relationship to nature and organisms she is drawn to the contrasting frailness and solidity nature possesses. Her approach to work is playful, pensive and eclectic.

Using various detailing applications, the collection of vessels explores texture as a visual language while examining storytelling and the interaction of object and user. The repeated forms are fabricated by method of slip casting. The individualization of each form creates a unique story that interacts with each piece to create a dialogue.
