"I strive to create unique, thoughtful pieces that naturally find a place in the lives of their owners. "
Central to Frank Saliani's work is the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. From the tangible objects in our lives to the experiences, relationships, and ideas that make us who we are, everything in our world is composed of parts that form a greater whole. Saliani's work explores the larger relationships and patterns that occur through the synergy of these parts.
In Saliani's work, each part is cast from colored clay slip using handmade molds. The cast parts are then altered, textured, and assembled into sculptural and functional forms. The colored slip acts as an under-painting and allows for a greater variety of color and surface decoration. The finished work is fired to cone six in oxidation, making it very durable.
Frank Saliani studied ceramics at Syracuse University and received an M.F.A. from Ohio University. He has completed residencies at the Carbondale Clay Center, the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Millersville University, and the Red Lodge Clay Center. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
