Lola Cera is a series of functional ceramic pieces designed and produced by Montréal-based artist Camille Zurini. When she designed the cow cup in university, Zurini did not expect to start a brand.

While she produces bowls, plates and custom pieces, the cow cup and magnet remain the symbols of Lola Cera.

TURBA is the first journal for the study, theory, and praxis of curatorial strategies in the live arts. The live arts are broadly defined as those arts in which contingent, momentary acts and events, performed by human or other autonomous agents, are crucial to the aesthetic perception and the emergence of meaning in ephemeral time-based work. They include, but are not limited to, dance, music, sound art, theatre, performance art, verbal arts, circus arts, live media arts and inter-arts performance works. With this journal, TURBA aims to create a platform for the exploration of ideas, concepts, constraints, expectations, and contingencies which guide and drive curatorial practices in these fields.

In her first year there, she fell in love with ceramics. In addition to her artistic practice, she likes to design utilitarian objects. This allows her to combine works of art with objects of the everyday.
