Ceramica Bevilacqua is a family-run artisan workshop based in inland Sicily, Caltanissetta. Since 1997, artists Antonio and Giuseppe, who are also brothers, have sought inspiration in Sicilian majolica and the island’s traditional decorations. Yet, all their work is extremely recognisable and bears their personal touch. Amphorae, vases, plates and clocks are only some of the marvellous pieces produced. All the creations by the Bevilacqua brothers are dominated by bright yellow, intense blue, emerald green and deep black, representing the Sicilian sun, sea, hills and the lava on Mount Etna.
Enamel, 60 x 151 x 68.2 cm This refrigerator, inspired by the decorative motifs of the Sicilian cart and chivalric themes, features on the front the entry into battle of Arganteon horseback. Other epic episodes are depicted on the sides, including that of St. George, patron saint of knights and carters, intent on slaying the dragon. Shades of yellow, bold red and bright green, evocative of Sicily, dominate all the surfaces, while geometric patterns embellished with acanthus leaves frame the scenes.
