NINO CARUSO


The Strips Man, 2009 terra cotta, white slip , acrylic 23”h x 16.5” w x 9.75 “ d

In a very distinctive way, Nino Caruso breaks with Italian ceramic traditions while reflecting in his works a thorough understanding and appreciation of those traditions. Similarly, he embodies the European humanism while freely using forms and techniques from Japan such as haniwa and raku. He really makes people look at clay in a new way, always ready to point out its endless expressive possibilities. Tradition, improvisation and intuition are the factors that better describe his works. All the techniques he uses – even the ancient Japanese Raku technique – are revised based on his personal knowledge and taste.”
