Riccardo Biavati
He is the Artistic Director of the Bottega delle stelle for which he created unique works in stoneware clay, modeled and hand painted with enamels specifically designed.
His ceramics are a "tribute to the ancient artifacts, their history... are secret words and glances secrets, flights affectionate and wild nests, village heads, suns and clouds of roofs earthy, enchanted women, the wonders pots, imagined countries. And again queens who rule burrows and roots, guardians of the night skies, animals watching us silently, stoves that heat as memories, bowls like courtyards. Walk your streets, up the steps and enters their small doors."
