Paper Part 3: Vittorio Passaro
OK, this is one very closely related to paper, although the final result is ceramic. Artist Vittorio Passaro creates these beautiful vessels by folding, twisting and sculpting paper that is coated with gypsum until he reaches his desired form. By taking a negative mold of these shapes, he can create ceramics which capture the delicate nature of the original paper structures.
This collection, called 'Filmpaper Ceramics' was on exhibit this year at the Salone Satellite show in Milan. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a website or any contact info for Vittorio, but I'll continue to search. Please send me an email if you have more information. Thanks.
