Alessandro Ciffo

Silicone sculptor

Italian silicone sculptor Alessandro Ciffo has been working as an artist and designer since 1997. He is an autodidact and independent manufacturer, which are key elements of his career. His work is based on the ongoing research of the extreme potential of silicone. The technical characteristics of silicone enable Alessandro to obtain original aesthetic and functional results that are unalterable over time, resistant to temperatures and chemical agents, but above all to fashion. His discovery of silicone was quite accidental, but he was immediately fascinated by its potential. In fact, Alessandro believes that the 21st century will be the century of silicone as the 20th was for plastic. “I chose silicone as a medium to express myself,” he explains, “and I have never abandoned it. When I started, it was a semi-unknown material in the arts, there were neither teachers nor schools, so I had to invent everything, from the way to colour it to the techniques and tools."
