The power of the four elements

Welcome to my Atelier! My name is Federico and I was born and live in Umbria in Umbertide precisely, a small town in the Upper Tiber Valley near Perugia, Gubbio and Città di Castello. My land is rich in history and traditions, especially regarding the art of ceramics, which has become in the course of my artistic training, one of my greatest passions.
I chose to follow this art in a more current through the Raku technique, inspired by ancient classical forms and nature.
My work requires a great industriousness. I use a refractory ceramic, less plastic normal red clay. The piece of clay revenue my items that once dried are cooked a first time. Then, I decorated with glazes made from siliceous elements with the addition of precious metal oxides, following my personal secret recipes, result of ongoing studies.
Glazed the piece, it is fired a second time in an specially constructed kiln . At a temperature of approximately 950 celsius degrees, the piece is extracted incandescent and immersed in sawdust or dry leaves.
The thermal shock generates cracks in the glazes (crackle) and the combustion creates a lot of smoke, reducing the oxygen concentration and thereby generating lusters and metallic effects on the surface. The end result is always fascinating and surprising and the nature giving his final impression.
The soul of the raku is indeed the contact with the elements, Earth, Water, Air, Fire, generating unique and unrepeatable treasures, as nature creates, even if reproduced in series.

<< He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist. >>
