Carlo Zauli, Contemporary Of Voulkos

Recommended Posts

I thought since Voulkos tends to get responses from folks, I would share some pics from the Carlo Zauli Museum and surrounding city of Faenza. Zauli's life was a similar timeline and experience with WWII. he was from Faenza and began as a potter. His work changed with a "happy accident of a severely cracked piece and it changed his direction. His studio is as he left it when he died. The building has been turned into a museum. In the 1990s he had a touring exhibition throughout Japan in four cities.Comparing his abstract expressionism to Voulkos', I find his work to be more sensual and flowing. He used one glaze which accented the ridges and the form with a sugary breaking surface.

I had not known of Carlo Zauli until you posted this. I find his work as you said "sensual" and in direct contrast to that of Voulkos which I consider "brutal". I will certainly keep the museum on my list of to do's if I ever get back to Faenza. Thanks for posting!

Faenza ia a great place to visit for people interested in ceramics both contemporary and historical. Many ceramicists have lived here and many still do.

There is a Ceramics Olympics in Sept.where there are prizes for throwing.

 

there are many Zauli links. Here is a good one.
