December 2013 – Part II –

It’s time to update the blog. It’s time to post pictures and news. Just give me 4.23 minutes to refresh my mind and enjoy the world. It’s a kind of a secret that I will share with you today. Press play and enjoy…

So…. where I was. I was speaking about shows and prize. In this period I’m taking part to a lot of different events, click here to have and idea. If you are in time go there, if not I will post now links and a couple of pictures.
In Milano there are two shows: “La ceramica oggi in Italia” and “Gift” at the NoName space.
I have no pictures from the NoName space, but some friends of mine sent pictures from Villa Necchi.

In Ragusa at the same time I sent some pieces for the opening of a shop in front of Prima Classe Bar . The one that you can see here below.


At the end it’s time to speak about the prize…
This year I took part to the exhibition at the Castello Episcopio in Grottaglie named Sotto cieli stellati (under starry sky). I worked with 2 great friends of mine Mauro and Saverio on a piece: Si può’ dare di più. It’s the title of a song that won Sanremo in the 1987. It was singed by Umberto Tozzi, Gianni Morandi and Enrico Ruggieri. We worked under the pseudonames of Gianni, Umberto and Enrico and named the piece like their song. After it we used 3 shapes from the Grottaglie’s ceramics, to represents the nativity. Their were covered by a dark starry blanket. We didn’t want to win the prize, we just planned to show the situation of the ceramic in Grottaglie: sleepy and sad.
On the top pf this post you can see the picture, it’s not my typical style but you can feel the ironia. Have a nice day….

December 2013 – Part I –

It’s time to wait presents and snow. I am here sitting in the studio with  an hot water bag on my legs and senseless objects on my desk. It’s time to speak about news and events. It’s Christmas and it’s time to buy presents and say bye to my ceramics.
– There are different art-shows and shop where you can see my works in this period: Milano and Ragusa (click here). I am still waiting for good pictures… no way.
– On Sunday 22th of December I will take part to Make People do Lab (click here), an event in Fasano where you can see and buy the best christmas presents…
– Ting Ju SHAO for Taiwan Ceramic Art journal wrote an article about the Ceramic Biennale in cluj. Here you can see a picture, i really don’t know the language but it looks amazing.
– I also received a picture from Roma. It’s a flat where a really lovely and amazing girl put some of my balloons. It’s nice… she is super nice.
That’s all… no wait there is a great news. I won a prize but I will speak about it in the next days…
With Love


November 2013 – Part II –

Christmas is coming without snow here in grottaglie, but with a crazy cold weather. It’s time for me to be ready to ship, to organize art shows and celebrate opening and vacations.
At the moment I am doing 4 different art shows, 2 in Milano, one in Ragusa and one in Grottaglie. If you want to see, buy a present or just visit this place it’s time to take a break. First of all buy a ticket and go to Milano where you can visit Villa Necchi in the morning (click here). This’s a wonderful location for the “Ceramica oggi in Italia”, with a lot of amazing ceramists and works. I am there with 3 pieces. After it let’s have a coffee and move to the No Name Space (click here). It’ s not a gallery, better, and you can buy your Christmas presents and support good guys at the art show “gift, geschenk, cadeau”. When you have finished lets take a flight to Sicily and a bus to Ragusa where at the Bar Prima Classe (click here)  le Formiche are organizing the “Shoptional” art show. I hope that my stuff will be there in time… the 106 his a crazy road.
So finally you can come back to Grottaglie where at the Castle there is the “XXIV Mostra del Presepe” (click here). I made an ironic and a little polemical piece with 2 great friends (Saverio Liuzzi and Mauro Basile) speaking about the situation of the ceramic in Grottaglie where everything looks so sleepily.. We won the price for the “Giovane Ceramista” with the work “Si può dare di piu'”, picture above.. Thank you ….
Now it’s time for picture… have fun, don’t eat too much, see you soon I have to post pictures of art-shows, catalogues and balloons in wonderful location…
