Born in Naples in 1950, Mautone’s distinctive style is deeply influenced by the tradition of Vietri ceramics, especially in his choices of colors and lights.
His ceramics are dynamic, full of life, fantastic figures and idyllic spaces.
By Tiziana Manzetti
In the middle of the path I noticed a shop sign: La Caravella – Enoteca & Ceramiche. I had decided to forget about finding some special pottery piece in the area. I’d had enough of souvenir shops or ultra expensive art galleries. However I was stirred by the combination of wine and pottery and decided to give it a try.
After a long inspection at the content of the gallery – I did not pay too much attention to the wine, although I love it … – I engaged the shop assistant in a feverish talk about who the artists were and where they were from and whose idea it was to combine art & wine.
