In his workshop in Villaputzu, Adriano Concas works with heartfelt passion in the artistic manufacture of copper, the ductile material that he uses to craft artistic objects and utensils reflecting the forms and techniques of traditional artifacts. Working with creativity and sensitivity, he tries to express his personal artistic perspective with copper in objects of daily use. He participates with felt interest in craft exhibits and demonstrations of arts and crafts, inspired and stimulated by his bond with the territory and the history of Sardinia.
His production consists of a line of kitchen tools that the craftsman realizes reinterpreting the artifacts of the tradition where refined forms are combined with top quality craftsmanship. Also his production of artistic and decorative objects is freely inspired by the territory and local history.
In the workshop, he usually implements traditional coppersmith techniques, performed with the specific tools used for malleable metals, hammered during the melting phase with wooden hammers on preformed jig. In addition to coppersmith techniques, other techniques are used on metals, wood and horn to create objects made of different materials.
