Fausto Salvi ‘IDRAULICA’ at CAL 2016 – 8-10 April 2016


The IDRAULICA series of vessels especially created for Ceramic Art London 2016 has its roots in a workshop held in Gmunden, in Austria, some ten years ago. From that experience, which went under the general title of Water, the new group of ceramics, Connection, was born.
Sometimes, the inspiration and ideas behind a work of art need time to germinate in my mind and in my imagination before they evolve into something new and different.
In the case of IDRAULICA, I have grafted pipes and pipe fittings onto capacious round shapes, a process which was new to my practice and which produced surprising results. The objects have been cooked in a furnace several times, with successive layers of glaze which create a “skin” that is strikingly colourful, sharp in contrast and with strong tactile effects.

La serie di vasi IDRAULICA è appositamente creata per l’edizione 2016 di Ceramic Art London, ma le sue radici partono da un workshop tenutosi a Gmunden, in Austria, una decina di anni fa. Da quell’esperienza, che aveva come titolo Acqua, nacque il gruppo di ceramiche Connection.
Come talvolta accade, i risultati di un lavoro hanno bisogno di tempo per sedimentare nella nostra mente e nel nostro immaginario per poter essere riconsiderati ed evolvere in qualcosa di diverso.
Nel caso di IDRAULICA, condutture e raccordi tubolari si innestano su capienti forme tondeggianti, superfici che si prestano perfettamente alla sperimentazione con smalti colorati, pratica che raramente ho approfondito nella mia produzione. Cotture multiple e sovrapposizioni di smalti, che indagano le potenzialità della maiolica alla ricerca di una “pelle” vetrosa colorata e contrastante nei toni come negli effetti tattili.
Fausto Salvi / Brescia, 31 March 2016

Note: Hydraulics is a branch of applied science that deals with liquids. Inspired by the aesthetics of pipes and pipe fittings, Fausto Salvi has created a series of ceramic objects that look like a mixture of futuristic industrial creatures and ancient archaeological discoveries. His imagination has coloured them in an appealing range of tones, each one evoking the warmth of the earth as well as winter memories of summery days.
