MYSTÈRE D’ARGILE

April 2019 – present

 

Earth and Fire.
I like working with stoneware because of its rusticity and with porcelain for its elegant softness and its characteristics. Right from the first touch, these wonderful materials naturally adapt themselves to each gesture, the effect of which becomes more obvious as emotions and ideas appear, often leaving a large part to spontaneity. The Fire, a true orchestral conductor, completes the journey as it adds its important contribution in the creative process.

 

The crucial moment when the kiln is opened is full of emotions: time seems to stands still at that exact moment when you first see the piece which has just been born.

LAIA TORRAMILANS

February 2019 – present

 

I explore our humanity through ceramics. In my work, my vessels are a metaphors for human beings. The objects that I create possess the spirit of my life experiences.

 

This informs how I mould the clay, then in the kiln it is transformed by fire. My work is a collaboration between my intention and the elements. Using minerals and pigments,I explore and develop my own recipes for glazes, to find the colours of my life’s impressions.

 

I push clay to its limits. I put my knowledge of ceramics at the service of an art that reflects the beauty and resilience of life.

VITTORIO D’UVA

+ info

Hi, I’m Vittorio D’Uva, one of the artists of 137 ° Ceramic Art Studio.
My pieces are made totally by hand using stoneware or porcelain.
I have always been working with modeling pastes and finally three years ago I took the step in the world of ceramics. In my work with ceramics there are influences from my Neapolitan roots, my studies as an architect and above all my dreaming soul.

I am currently focusing my attention on creating sculptures in the shape of clouds.
Light clouds, with soft shapes, to hang or have them resting on the ground.
Clouds to remind us how important it is to dream. I hope one of my clouds can enter your home soon.

 

“There is a deep connection between the hands of the artist and the buyer. The hands that model the raw earth will come into contact with a new place through the sculpture. In this way the soul that inhabits the sculpture will know the soul of the home in which she will find a new place. ” Vittorio D’Uva
