Giovanni Cimatti


Italian ceramicist Giovanni Cimatti started his artistic activity in the 1970s, developing personal research on the relationship between form and surface, working with various techniques such as sangam clay decorations, raku, decal and terra sigillata. Giovanni has developed a new method of raku firing that he called Raku Dolce, whose peculiarities are the low temperature of extraction from the kiln and the slight fumigation. Giovanni worked as a teacher at the Art Institute of Siena, was director of the "T. Minardi" School of Drawing and Plastics in Faenza and is currently a teacher at the State Institute of Ceramics in Faenza. The ceramicist has been invited to hold solo exhibitions in Belgium, Japan, Holland, Korea and Switzerland, and has participated in cultural exchanges in France, Japan and Germany. Giovanni’s works can be found in various museums around the world.
