GUIDO DE ZAN: AN IDEA OF LIGHTNESS / CERAMICS 1978-2018
Born in Milan in 1947, and in 1975 began his research in the field of ceramics. Guido De Zan used stoneware and porcelain to create both sculptures and functional objects. This monograph is dedicated to his 40-year career as a ceramist, during which he sought ways to “lighten” the material and seek balance, however unstable it seemed. Comprising a rich catalogue of works divided into categories, it presents new texts by several authors, including De Zan himself. It also features a critical anthology of writings that emphasizes the fundamental themes of De Zan’s research, from the relationship between art and manual labour, to his connection with Milan.
