Mauro Mori, 2016
Mauro Mori's shapes are unique in that they are hand-made, sculpted and carved from solid blocks of natural matter. Often, they are tooled in their places of origin. The plasticity of the materials, the relief work on them and the intended and evident craftsmanship constitute the common thread running through all his work. The search for innovative solutions from wood has also led him to marbles and stones which, extracted from solid matter, reveals the desired form through a process of subtraction. Metals too — which are cast and then completed with oxidations and patinas — are the fruit of his constant research and development.
