Siglinda Scarpa is an Italian artist now based in North Carolina. Siglinda creates vessels and pots for cooking that, however sculptural, are unmistakably functional. Quite apart from these, she makes purely sculptural pieces that Georgia O’Keefe would understand very well. These pieces Siglinda calls Clouds, like the clouds of a summer day building to a gathering storm.
In addition to her work as an artist, Siglinda is a tireless animal rights activist.
As founder and primary benefactor for cat sanctuary The Goathouse Refuge
in Pittsboro, NC, Siglinda fosters a safe haven for cats that were
dispossessed or scheduled for euthanasia by public shelters.
Though still in its infancy, The Goathouse Refuge has placed many
cats and kittens in forever homes thanks to Siglinda’s support.
