Paolo Staccioli

Born: 1943, Italy, Florence

Ceramicist. He left school at 13 and he first developed his career as a painter in the 1970s, but since 1989 has worked mainly in ceramics. Largely self taught, at first he painted on ceramics but after attending a ceramic studio in Faenza, a major centre for ceramics in Italy, he developed other techniques including hand modelling and reduction firing. His expressive modelled sculptures of horses, cherubs and warriors make fleeting references to ancient stories and myths. He has taken part in several of the Biennale held at the Museum of Ceramics in Faenza and in 1999 he demonstrated at the International Ceramics Festival in Aberystwyth
