Professor Boccini’s Ceramics
Romano Ranieri was born in Torgiano (Perugia – Umbria – Italy) in 1935. Fifty years of experience living with the humility of the great mastersand his never-ending pursuit of perfection have made him one of world’s top masters in the application of sophisticated ceramic techniques.
His ability to transfer artistic expressions found in other mediums (sculpture, oil on canvas, fresco or watercolor) to the ceramic medium is limitless. His work is displayed all over the world, in prestigious galleries, at the museum of modern art in Basilea, in numerous churches, and in the streets and in city squares of many cities.
For example, 52 ceramic panels each measuring approximately 60 x 40 inches in Chicago are on display at the Scalabrignano institute in North Lake; they portray the most significant moments of the New Testament.
He does not want to be talked about for himself: his aspiration instead is to leave, through his work, a mark of quality, and to become an inspiration and a goal to surpass for future generations. His constant challenge with the masters of the past on which he based all his work, raising his objectives and hoping that his ending point would be the starting point for future generations.
