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 The central figures of this refrigerator are St. George, shown in the act of defeating the dragon on the front, and the Paladins of France, framed by the sumptuously colourful fret patterns that characterise Sicilian carts. The heroic-chivalric themes shared by the “carretto” and the puppet theatre, are intended to express the eternal conflict between good and evil through an enchanting kaleidoscope of images and colours.
