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…
