Lucio and Silvia's studio, LS linearte, was founded in 2001 as a place to share experiences in the field of crafting, honed in years of study and experimentation in different artistic and ceramic techniques. Their work focuses on the investigation of local traditions, customs and practices, , in multiple forms, characteristic of the campidanese rural territory. Their references reinterpret the elements of local fauna, people, traditions, through expressive modalities of research and contemporary making. The workshop is a fascinating place, located in the old town of Serramanna in Sardinian Medio Campidano. Made in the campidanese fashion, with huge glass walls and low arches, it is the ideal context to see artisans at work and their productions.
The work of potters stems from multiple inspirations. The decorative object collection called Pecora id dedicated to the Arbus country life, with its flocks and pastures. Stylized animals are a successful artistic elaboration that blend linear parts and descriptive decorations. The Sardinian woman fair, a collection of black ceramic sculptures, analyses the female figure in local tradition. The Pintadera collection consists of black vases decorated with graffiti and moulds, while the Ciottole con inserto e cucite collection features containers with clean contemporary lines and ancient inspirations.
