CRITICAL REVIEW

       
        She makes abstract, but also figurative shapes, with sculptural valences, independent objects, installations. She works with ceramics, sometimes combined with other materials. Daniela Făiniş takes the exploration of the possibilities of ceramics to less accessed areas of expression. Works like The woods, exhibited at the Botanical Garden Bucharest, reveal a kinetic potential and, at the same time, a sonorous component.
