  • Description
    The vase, the archetype of every ceramist, is central to the research of the initial period of Carlo Zauli who, after leaving the Faenza Institute of Art, immediately dedicated himself to contemporary production, and within only a few years began to innovate its techniques, shapes and decorative choices from 1950-1967.

    Carlo Zauli is indisputably considered one of the most important sculptors of the twentieth century.
    After having won the main awards in ceramics in the fifties, the early sixties saw him evolve towards a markedly sculptural interpretation of his craft. In these years he developed his own artistic language, imbued with informal atmospheres intertwined with a harmonious but disruptive "naturalness": these are the years of growing international success. From 1958, the year in which the great high-reliefs were made for the Baghdad palace and the Kuwait State Printing Office, he saw his fame grow continually, up to the end of the seventies and eighties, throughout Europe, Japan , North America, where he realizes exhibitions and placed work permanently.
    Carlo Zauli was born in 1926 in Faenza, where he died in 2002.
    Instead of ornate platters and decorative vases, his work seemed to have emerged from the earth itself, with organic curves, jagged edges, cracks and fissures that reflected the artist’s keen connection with nature. It was this passion for the natural world that made his work revered in Japan. Zauli first showed in the Japan as well in 1964 with the International Exhibition of Contemporary Ceramic Art that toured several top museums.
