Ceramiche Artistiche Fabrizio Budroni
Fabrizio Budroni combines the technical expertise of the craftsman to the sensitive soul of the artist. He graduated at the Art Institute of Sassari and after several experiences, in 1989 he opened his workshop in Porto Torres, followed by a retail shop in the city centre. Currently located in the countryside close to the village, the laboratory is the place where the craftsman designs and makes experiments, applying ceramics techniques to his works of art and objects of daily use. In the summer season he moves to the Asinara Island, inside the structure that once housed the old jail, where he crafts and exhibits his productions. Among the most important works, the The Lord of the abyss memorial statue is worth mentioning, a 2.5 meter tall Christ installed on the shores of Cala Reale.
Several collections characterise his ceramics production, many of which are dedicated to animals typical of the island traditions, with an explicit reference to the marine world: moorhens, owls, fish of various shapes and sizes turn into vases, bowls, plates or decorative elements, offering an intriguing world of cheerful and colourful objects, figment of the imagination and sensitivity of the craftsman.
In his workshop, Fabrizio Budroni crafts object using his hands only, including lathe forming, that is his main technique. Being present while he uses his lathe means to witness a fascinating ritual celebrated with his hands with the aim of give life to a new object. Graffiti, glazing and enameling complete his works, enriching his collections with cheerful and lively chromatic and decorative elements.
