Elena Rausse’s story

Forging narratives in steel: the enigmatic artistry of a master craftsman blending tradition, innovation, and timeless beauty

In the picturesque town of Bassano del Grappa, where tradition dances with innovation, Elena Rausse’s artistry unfolds like a mesmerizing tapestry. Born in 1993, this artisan and designer embody the spirit of a new era, seamlessly blending design, ceramics, and sustainability into a dynamic harmony.

Elena’s creative journey emanates from her family’s atelier, a haven of tradition and collaboration. As a Basic Design teacher at ISIA Roma Design, she not only imparts knowledge but actively contributes to the ever-evolving landscape of design. In 2020, she co-founded TE.RA Design Studio with Bruno Testa, an ambitious venture exploring product design and sustainable materials.

Her craft is a symphony of expressive ceramics, intricately designed to reflect cultural narratives. Elena’s work transcends mere aesthetics; it’s a commitment to material innovation and meaningful connections. She envisions futurible solutions that weave together cultural models, symbols, and emerging technologies, subtly shaping our daily lives.

Elena’s art resonates with a diverse audience – from individual art enthusiasts and design aficionados to sustainability advocates and educational institutions. Her creations speak a universal language, appealing to those who seek not just beauty, but a profound connection to their surroundings.
