Toni Moretto is an Italian artist who has been described as a "cartoonist sculptor" who creates "humorous ceramics", and whose work can be seen in many contemporary museums. Moretto's work perfectly reflects the innate humor or ridiculousness of his models, taken from everyday life, professions and scenes. On of the subject matters he depicts is that of magicians.

Magician Pierre Brahma met Toni Moretto many times and made him discover the true possibilities of a magician character. From there, he created the statues you can see now. Moretto's genius comes in full light when he gets his inspiration from magicians. His true artistry shines through these clay magicians in the evocation of their faces, and the motion of their hands. Only Moretto has the ability to capture a magician's look and gestures in clay, not to mention the slight irony of our profession.

The statues are made from a pure white clay that is oven-baked, meticulously painted, baked again, and finally varnished. The pieces that are released from his workshop are not examples of craftsmanship, but rather pure art. There is no mold. The characters are individually shaped by hand and each one is a unique piece.

Moretto never made two similar statues. This "one of a kind" aspect makes them very special.

We are helping a good friend of ours to sell these gorgeous Moretto pieces. The prices we are asking are a bargain, as these pieces normally sell for much more.

The Statues on the right were posted last week (September 13, 2010), and sold in a few days. Moretto Statue - The Bra Trick Toni Moretto Sculpture - Zombie

Here are a few more...

Rabbit in the Hat

This is quite a lovely and whimsical piece, depicting a magician attempting to pull a rabbit out of a hat.

There is a lot of detail in this piece, particularly when you look under the table to discover how the trick is done.

The piece measures approximately 9" tall, 8" wide, and 7-1/2" deep.
