The studio is situated in a beautiful farm house set in the green Umbrian hills a few kilometres from Orvieto – a city internationally recognised for its famous cathedral, adoned with frescos by Luca Signorelli as well as its stupedious mosaics and beautiful medieval stained glass.
The relaxing countryside atmosphere, the breathtaking fauna and flora and the ever changing seasons help create the perfect creative conditions for realising beautiful works of art.
The studio has a wide range of glass, light tables, kilns, ample space and all the ingredients necessary for creating beautiful commissions or the perfect learning atmosphere for a student attending one of our courses. When we work with collaborators on larger commissions, the studio is the perfect place to create wonderful works of art.
For students who intend on signing up to one of our intensive courses, we are happy to offer you a place to sleep in one of the house’s bedrooms and of course if you are staying with us, you are more than welcome to enjoy our cooking and produce from our organic garden, or from some of the local producers.
IKO studio both shares its premises and regularly collaborates with the Mosaic Studio -
Anna Paola Franceschi.
