Sebastiano Fischer is the mind and the hands behind Ceramiche Fischer, a contemporary ceramic workshop located in Pantelleria, a tiny island off the coast of Sicily, in the province of Trapani. Sebastiano studied at “G. Ballardini” Art School for Ceramics in Faenza, specializing in majolica. He later got a degree in sculpture at Venice Academy of Fine Arts. After his studies he went back to his beloved island, where he started experimenting with different techniques and firings, thus developing a signature style aimed at conveying the beauty and energy of his surrounding territory. Pantelleria’s landscapes are in fact his greatest source of inspiration. His favourite technique is raku, which allows him to obtain certain characteristic effects, which he combines with materials collected around the island itself, such as red, yellow and ochre clays, ground stones, quartz, ferrous debris, seaweed, ash… Just like an alchemist, with these elements he creates his own formulas, the result of years of research and experiments, giving life to unique and modern ceramic objects, home décors and interior design furnishings.
