Carlo Zauli is unquestionably considered one of the most important sculptor potters of the twentieth century.
After winning the main awards dedicated to ceramic art in the 1950s, the early 1960s saw Carlo Zauli evolve towards a markedly sculptural interpretation of his craft. During this time, his own artistic language matured, imbued with an informal character and intertwined with a harmonious yet disruptive “naturalness”: these are the years of his growing international success. Since 1958, the year in which the great reliefs of the palace of Baghdad and the government printing office in Kuwait City were built, his fame grew continuously until, throughout the 1970s and 1980s, it reached all of Europe, Japan, and North America, where he held exhibitions and installed permanent displays of his works.
Carlo Zauli was born in 1926 in Faenza, where he passed away in 2002.
Today, his works are on display in forty museums and public collections around the world.
