Each year Pietrasanta celebrates its Artigiani, the master craftsmen and women who work together with the artists to produce their visions in ceramics, mosaic, marble and bronze. “Homo Faber, 2015” this year takes place in the beautiful setting of La Versiliana park (some works are also featured at the Pietrasanta Pier).
I’ve worked in Pietrasanta for 40 years and have been lucky to work with and get to know some of the wonderful artisans in the city’s marble studios and bronze foundries. “Homo Faber” is an annual show that pairs artworks by some of the local and international artists who work in Pietrasanta, with the artisans and the laboratories in which they were produced.
This year I am showing three pieces, “Ninfea” (shown at top in the picture above) a bronze sculpture which was produced by the Mariani Foundry, “The Observers” – this is a 70cm high gesso model, which is in the collection of the Museo dei Bozzetti, and a “Selene” in porcelain produced in the ceramics studio of Ivo Poli, all located in Pietrasanta.
