Op-u is an initiative between ceramics and coaching focused on the dialogue between the hands and the mind, between resources and solutions, led by two minds and four hands, Monica Zauli and Brigitte Mauel.
The Carlo Zauli Museum is the ideal place in which Op-u can be created and developed since within its workshops, both historically and in its current life, ceramics have always been the means by which to express and materialise individual visions through collective practices and relationships of a heterogeneous nature.
Op-U is aimed at companies and individuals, with two different and targeted paths.
Workshops organised within the Carlo Zauli Museum for corporate teams involved in a project of change, innovation and development. The manual work with clay aimed at the creation of an object accompanies in its planning the mental work guided by the objective of developing one or more solutions for the realisation of interventions in favour of business growth.
Workshops organised inside the Carlo Zauli Museum for people attracted by the future and by a method in which hands and mind collaborate to create change, whether personal or professional. The encounter with the earth, the welcome sense of its being as it is, its ability to transform and its limits transmit important information to the mind, they talk about risk and feasibility, creating the framework for sensible, desired and sustainable change.
Op-u is a duo of designers of change and growth, with European roots and suitcases always at the ready. Monica with her hands and artistic imagination, Brigitte with words and a more theoretical imprint, combine to experience – by combining skills and talent – the profound value of diversity. Working with them, people discover the richness of confrontation, the innovative power generated by diversity and the optimism released by change.
