PASTORE & BOVINA
Elisabetta Bovina and Carlo Pastore were born respectively in 1961 and 1965 in Broni (PV) and Corbara (SA). After high school, they attended the ISIA (Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche) in Faenza. Besides designing and personally producing their works, using different materials such as wood, iron, ceramics, glass, they collaborate with various companies designing objects and furniture. Since 1995, they have been producing their work with the brand ELICA. For more than a decade, they have also focused on ceramic costumes and their costume-sculptures are often featured in modern ballets and performances blending ceramics, music, poetry and theatre. In 2009, together with Maura Pozzati and Giovanni Bolognini, they opened, in the historical centre of Bologna, Crete - pièce unique, a new space devoted to ceramics and applied arts. In 2010, in cooperation with FOS Ceramiche, they exhibited new collections in Paris at the Maison et Objet and in Milan at the Salone del Mobile.
