fathers of daughters

March 6, 2018

I was looking at the work of the late, great painter, sculptor, architect, writer and stage designer, Salvatore Fiume and I was drawn to this image of Fiume painting frescoes on the walls of a collapsed castle in the little town of Fiumefreddo Bruzio in Southern Italy. I love how many local kids have come to watch him paint, and I’d love to one day visit the town and stay at Borgodifiume. In the meantime, I’m totally inspired by the motifs on these tiles, designed by Fiume’s daughter, Laura Fiume. In some shape or form, they’ll make their way into a plate or bowl of mine.
