Elio Schiavon


Handicraft tradition, artistic experience, continuous research, these are the components of the work of Elio Schiavon, a ceramic artist who matured artistically first in the workshops and laboratories in Bassano, then at the Art School at Nove and the Accademia dei Carmini in Venice. Many Italian and foreign awards (Faenza Giovani, Bevilacqua la Masa, Biennial of Venice, Stockholm, Helsinki, Munich) confirm his widely appreciated gifts and give a boost to an already fervent artistic research: from the Veneto school and the great Artists, Elio Schiavon draws suggestions and ideas that he always works out in a very personal and original style. Along with his son, he runs a workshop in which experience, innovation, curiosity, sensitivity and passion become the main igredients of their ceramics.
