Cetta Pilati is an award-winning artist known for her marble mosaic creations. She completed her Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art majoring in Sculpture) at RMIT University, in Victoria in 1992. In 2007 her Italian heritage took her to Ravenna Italy where she studied traditional methods and approaches to mosaic art making. It was here her passion for marble began.
Cetta’s mosaics are notable for their tactile nature and for the gentle and considered placement. Her pieces hold a forgotten simplicity, a quietness and yet a sense of innate strength which emanates from her application of the traditional laborious mosaic methods. Her inspiration comes from her innermost feelings. Cetta would like viewers to take time to contemplate and reflect on what they see and feel when observing her mosaics.
Her experience includes private and public commissions, regularly exhibiting, delivery of art based presentations and workshops throughout Australia, sharing her knowledge by conducting private and group tuition and oversee a bespoke natural stone hand cut tesserae store.
The artists that influence Cetta include Anthony Pryor, Inge King, Marco De Luca, Jeanne Reynal and Laurence Edwards.
Cetta is an active member of NAVA, MAANZ, and the Melbourne Society of Women Painters & Sculptors.
