Art Deco successfully integrated the multitude of fascinating design innovations of its time. The mobile perspectives of abstract cubism were subtly merged into the designs but with more symmetrical aspects. The visions of futurism and modernism, inspired by the possibilities of the Machine Age were embraced in its design and choice of materials, while the simpler, functional ideals of Constructivism, Die Stijl and the Bauhaus disciplines were introduced. The dynamism and movement of the 20‘s Jazz Age and the Industrial Age were also prominent elements. The Bauhaus belief that mass production could live in harmony with the artistic spirit of individuality fitted nicely with the mass production utilised during the Art Deco era and the streamlined forms adapted well to the production methods.
The shift away from the Gothic, Baroque and Classical idioms, which began with Art Nouveau at the turn of the 19th century, were taken to the next level. The ethereal nympths in lush organic nature landscapes surrounded by bats, butterflies, dragons and other fantasy creatures morphed into modern, elegant, fashionable ladies of affluence, accompanied by all breeds of domesticated animals, especially dogs, but even including the likes of panthers and gazelles. The demands of marketing led to a depiction of sleekness, sophistication and order. This was reinforced by the symmetrical designs that overtook the asymmetry of Art Nouveau and the rectilinear lines becoming as prevalent as the curvilinear  ones.  Interestingly, the nudity of the Art Nouveau era survived , but took on a more liberated context in its expression. The diversity of animals featured in the unique Art Deco designs is one of the endearing aspects of this era.

Fausto, Fabbricatore and Fausto

 

The  Italian ceramic arts of Fausto Melotti, Michele Fabbricatore and Fausto Salvi :

 

Several generations of ceramicists who encapsulate the freedom, spontaneity and flair of the Italian aesthetic.

La Pittura, 1939 - 1940-Fausto Melotti

‘La Pittura ‘ – Fausto Melotti

 

Fausto Melotti

 

Fausto Melotti was born into a musical family and he initially studied physics, mathematics and electrical engineering. In 1928, at the age of 27, he enrolled in the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, where he trained alongside Fontana with the sculptor Adolfo Wildt. Melotti’s first experiences as a ceramist occurred in 1929 after meeting the renowned architect, designer, writer, and ceramics enthusiast, Gio Ponti, who at that time was the artistic director for the Ricardo Ginori ceramic and porcelain manufactory. Melotti assisted Ponti with the execution of several of his designs, and the collaboration marked the beginning of his twenty-year relationship with the firm. While he would continue to work with ceramics for his entire career, his most concentrated involvement with the medium came in the aftermath of World War II. After discovering that his studio had been destroyed in the bombardment of Milan, he renewed his practice by renting out a kiln, thus initiating a fifteen-year period in which he only produced ceramics and terracotta sculptures.

Melotti was recognized, both nationally and internationally, as his contemporaries Alexander Calder, Alberto Giacometti, Louise Bourgeois and Lucio Fontana, as a key figure in the field of modern and contemporary sculpture, being distinguished for having been, from the beginning of the 30’s, a significant contributor in the renewal and development of the plastic language and its materials. Using terracotta, faience and plaster sculptures in mixed media including iron, ceramic and stainless steel works, drawings and sketches, the sculptural path 0f Fausto Melotti was closely linked to the world of visual arts. He merged the classical traditions with the trends of the European avant-garde, mixing disparate strains of 20th-century Italian art from Futurist modernity to the metaphysical elements of the Surrealists.

Fausto Salvi

 

Fausto discovered ceramics in the late 80’s, attending courses at the State Institute of Art of Ceramics in Faenza. ” When I began to work in ceramics, drawing was all-important for me. I enjoyed drawing on the white surface of majolica, being smooth and absorbent. I used to inscribe any surface it offered, plates, cylinders, jugs, vases. Any shape responded to my need to express myself through my drawings. Only later did I learn to communicate through shape and volume, I began to study the expressive possibilities of clay and modeling, more carefully. At the same time I began to think about the surfaces of my pieces as abstract textures and I started to use pure pigment. As I have worked in different series; I have never wanted to concentrate on only one of the elements I was exploring. The presence or absence of drawing has enabled me to communicate very different feelings and messages.”

During an exhibition of Australian contemporary ceramics at the Faenza Museum in the 90’s, Fausto was struck by how the absence of cumbersome traditions was really an advantage in terms of lightness and spontaneity. Some of his pieces, like Melotti, show hints of classical influence, but most are refreshingly original and visually engaging.

Michele Fabbricatore :

 

In 1992 at age of 20 MicheleI won a scholarship to do a pottery internship for three months in Maastricht in the Netherlands. In 1993 he began studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence.

” My work is a large cauldron of everything that I like and I’m passionate about: Calvin Orlando Furioso, from fairy tales to mythology, all revisited and reinterpreted with an eye for the ironic and surreal.  My mission is to retrieve the most authentic part of me and see with a child’s unconditioned perception, which looks at the world with awe and wonder. And to relive the gift of enchantment that governs all beauty. Feeding this treasure that we all have within, with a desire and a commitment in my life where I hope these values become conveyed through my work.”

Functional pottery – flora and cuisine

For a master class in colour diversity, depth, shape and textures, its hard to go past plants and flowers. The colour richness is unsurpassed and countless design trends have been directly influenced by the features of theses natural wonders. From the symmetrical to the abstract, from random to mystically sequenced dimensions, all are innately structured in a sublime state of balance.
I regard the presentation of Japanese foods to sit at the pinnacle in the art of food display, so it was a logical choice for showing ceramics in a functional context. Miki Nagata’s work in the field of photographing Japanese food is as sumptuous as the subject. For the flowers I mainly chose the excellent displays used by Frances Palmer to promote her wares.

Three Contemporary Ceramicists

 

Zoe Hillyard, Bennett Bean, Mette Maya Gregersen

 

Zoe’s patchwork ceramics, draw on the Japanese yobitsugi/wabi-sabi concept of the chi inherent in the imperfect moving towards perfection. She also integrates storytelling into her wares by using fabrics that have particular historical narratives. Bennett Bean’s ceramic sculptures use interlocking glazed panels that highlight the depth of field and expand the already charged dialogue between the contrasting shapes and patterns. The landscape of his larger then life compositions with competing elements of complexity, merge together in a harmonious conclusion. Mette Gregerson creates her ceramic forms like she is embalming an Egyptian mummy, while also infusing her ocean wave fascination into her sculptures.

I chose the following three contemporary artists because they all create highly dynamic ceramic art, using innovative and unique approaches to express a striking vibrancy.

 

Zoe Hillyard, UK

” My work and research activities are inspired by cultural exchange and strongly influenced by ethical concerns.  Travel, teaching and volunteering all influence the nature of my creative practice. I am particularly drawn to remote communities where lives are fundamentally shaped by landscape and climate, and am interested in how fibre and textile skills often play an important part in livelihood activities. The design process, for me, begins with materials – both raw and recycled and Ceramic Patchwork reflects this approach.  It builds on my interest in hand craft processes, construction and form, and in my belief that items should be treasured for the long-term.”

 For the Lizzie Mary Collection,  Zoe created a blue and white digitally printed textile design using scanned imagery of lace. The fragments spanned four generations of her family. Some she made herself using her bobbin lace making skills she learnt as a teenager, the rest are pieces that her great-grandmother wore as detachable details on her Victorian dresses.

 Bennet Bean, USA

 

” I don’t make any distinctions between making things, cooking, gardening, and building houses.  Elements from the garden appear in paintings and the surface obsession of the pots appears in the house as consciousness of each decision about material and finish.  Each cross-pollinates.  Curiosity about how to express identity results in having my DNA done.  That image then surfaces in collages and then again in the rugs I create.  The paintings and the pots have both contributed their imagery to the rugs.  It’s a dance where ideas are applied in different ways depending on the medium.  “

An extract from a Bennett Bean essay on “Finding a place in the 21st Century”

“From the variety of choices available, I found the idea of the vessel the most personally interesting. It is the paradigm of historical ceramics and not appropriated from the art world. My exploration followed the same path as the painters. In keeping with the analytical approach of the modernist painters, the two characteristics of the vessel that I have chosen as my subject are decorative surface outside and space inside, with the concomitant unfolding of the relationship between these two elements. It is by mining these essential concepts that my work finds consistency and coherence. Each of us chooses and builds upon the objects of our historical antecedents. The majority of the clay work in the past fifty years has been driven by obsession with technique – moving from Raku to salt to wood fire in a slow evolution of identity through methods. It was my goal to avoid a ceramic identity defined by technique. Technique is of course there because we are object makers but, in my work, technique is always in the service of the idea.”

Mette Maya Gregersen, Denmark

 

“After a while working in fragments and burning away, I feel the need to construct pieces. This is an organic process built slowly using strips of clay that are first torn apart, then carefully wrapped around each other and put together

Every action in clay refers back to a mental state. There has to be a connection between thought, hand, and space, where each element investigates the other and creates a channel of communication. If I repeatedly fall into the same black hole then I will investigate that path, how I got there, and how I can get back up again.”

Ceramicist Mette Gregersen is  intrigued by the power of waves and their constant motion. She captures this eternal movement while enhancing the shapes of her sculptures further with the wrapping procedure that gives the impression of an Egyptian embalming , conjuring an ancient mystique.
