RUBEN FASANI

1/1

Born in Argentina in 1960, Ruben grew up playing in his father’s ironworking shop. After a brief courtship with architecture, Fasani studied at the National School of Ceramics in Buenos Aires, getting an Artistic Ceramics Technician Degree.

 

He experimented first with pottery, ceramics and sculpture. Then, In 1991 he travelled around Japan and Europe, visiting the principal centers in Ceramics and Glass, where he began to experiment with glass. He became fascinated with the transparency of the material and the ability to discover its secrets. He works with flat glass (Float glass), fusing different layers and shapes on a lost cast, obtaining an individual touch in each piece.

 
Ruben likes his viewers to discover and experience his works with the different characteristics and possibilities glass has to offer: transparencies, textures, stretching, etc., all these elements go together with a concept.

 

 While working, he welcomes the “happy accidents” that have taught him new techniques and strategies. Within the “Trizas” series, Fasani was able to combine the trades he learned as a child - working with metal and glass.

 

Clay, recycled glass and found materials are his favorite tools to work with. If something doesn’t come out just right, he can continuously recycle his materials without wasting products and not plundering the planet’s resources.

 

“What amuses me most is not knowing what I’ll be doing with my hands next, like I was as a child playing in my father’s workshop - before I knew the meaning of the word, ‘artist’. I had to keep working to find out what that meant.”
