Renato Bugiotti

  • The shapes of natural stone suggest a minimal intervention, a polished steel wire reinforces the concept of an icy material; the work is inspired by nature and the transition phases of solid and liquid forms.

  • In the warm texture of wood, the outlines of a new life can be seen, a concept further expressed through the steel element intended to emphasize the connection with the womb. The work is entirely handmade on an oleaster tree root and forged steel.

  • The intense and calibrated material association binds together the three elements chosen to symbolize the very core of nature. The oleaster root merges with the marble of Orosei through the same fluid form, reinforced by steel.

  • A vibrant drop slips between the wood veining, a minimal intervention giving the idea of vital lymph and nourishment. The sculpture is made out of an oleaster root and forged steel and it is hand-polished.

  • The steel serpent winds around the fluid form of the drop, the symbolic translation of "original sin" that combines the concept and the aesthetic form.

The artisan

Renato Bugiotti explores the charm of materials; the artist and metalsmith is an artisan skilled in the production of art objects, rich in charisma. Born in Fossombrone, in the province of Pesaro e Urbino, he moved to Sardinia in the Centre of Orosei at the age of two; Renato cares and develops the personal artistic sensitivity, learning and refining a number of techniques. He makes objects of different shapes, colours and surfaces, involving the use of all senses: steel, worked and shaped, is put together with other durable materials. They are objects designed to blend into the environment, to match furnishings, inspired by a precious uniqueness and Renato exhibits his work at exhibitions and fairs.

The collection

The production essentially consists of artistic objects made of different materials capable of giving style to furnishing and living spaces in different contexts. The theme mainly studies is the drop, a shape that Renato crafts with sinuous contrast between the perceptions of fluid and solid matter.

The technique

The objects combine hand-forged steel, enriched with details of mirror-polished finish, with wood and stone carved and finished by hand.
