Le Ceramiche Incantate Biavati

Dear friends,
I have no intention of talking about my ceramics because I am convinced that they will do that themselves, much bett er than I could.Instead, I would like to quote this passage from a book*. I read recently where I found many symbolic and striking elements that are close to my way of thinking…
The pot was in the centre of the hearth: “it was simmering away slowly, almost continuously – wrote Camporesi – nurtured by a perennial fi re or kept warm by embers that rarely died nor became cold, where the change of the seasons was unknown. Lower down, the ashes of the fi re were spread out, useful for cooking potatoes, maize cobs, onions, chard… Each side stood the brass fi re irons, almost defi ning an invisible border, the locus sacer, the household gods; the fi replace dark and hazy with its black hood as a kind of astral stairway that put the inside of the house in communication with the remote immensity of the skies: the old lady who comes to bring presents at Epiphany, the talking crickets, the cosmic and solar fragments, the messages from the wind could all come down that chimney into the kitchen, either to scare us or to bring gift s and then disappear into thin air like the voice of the wind that makes the fl ame fl icker or just lightly lift s the ashes where the old folks were reading their fortunes…
