As a lover of all things ceramic (aka a clay geek), I was stoked to hear that the Premio Faenza exhibition was taking place this year. This prestigious event has a long and storied history, dating back to 1938, and it remains one of the most important showcases for ceramic art in the world.
I first had the pleasure of participating in the Premio Faenza exhibition back in 2005, during the 59th edition. At the time, I was still a relatively unknown artist, just starting to make a name for myself in the world of ceramics. The experience of exhibiting my work at such a prestigious event was truly unforgettable. Not only did it give me an opportunity to showcase my art to a wider audience, but it also allowed me to connect with other ceramic artists from all over the world.
Now, as I prepare to exhibit my latest work ‘Followers’ at the 62nd edition of the Premio Faenza exhibition, I am filled with excitement and anticipation. This year’s event promises to be just as exciting as the last, with 50 talented artists from around the world showcasing their finest work. I am honored to be among them, and I can’t wait to see what kind of beautiful and innovative pieces will be on display.
Of course, the Premio Faenza exhibition is more than just an opportunity for artists to showcase their work. It is also an important cultural event, one that celebrates the rich history of ceramic art in Italy and around the world. The event has a long and illustrious history, dating back to the 1930s, and it has been a showcase for some of the most important artists in the medium over the years.
One of the things that sets the Premio Faenza exhibition apart from other events of its kind is the way in which it showcases a diverse range of ceramic art styles and techniques. From traditional Italian majolica to contemporary sculpture and installation pieces, the event truly has something for everyone. It is a celebration of the incredible versatility and beauty of ceramic art, and it serves as an important reminder of the important role that this medium has played in human history and culture.
