Art through Fire – Luca Schiavon in Todi

April 4 – Mid June, 2009
Todi – Italy

Italian Ceramics - Work by Luca Schiavon - Photo Credits: www.exibart.comNo words need to be spent on the beauty of Todi, an old town nested on a steep hill not far from Perugia,  in Umbria. These days, however, there is one more reason to plan a visit to Todi: a fascinating combination of art and good food, meant to provide enjoyment to all the senses.

The main characters of the experiment are a restaurant, hosting the exhibition “Art through Fire”, an art gallery organizing the event and the outstanding ceramic works by Luca Schiavon.

Schiavon is an artist from Padoa with a fairly long résumé, crammed with both solo and collective exhibitions in Italy, US and Japan. He was born in 1960 in a family of artists. He started making pottery very early and spent a long time in Japan, studying Japanese pottery styles and techniques. His first important solo exhibition was held there in 1990.

His works are marked by a strong formal personality and color palette. He makes a generous use of his potter’s wheel to create unusual shapes which are often cut and reassembled in unique sculptural pieces.
