Fernando Casasempere

1958 - 

Chilean sculptor and ceramist. In 1982, he entered the Escuela Forma in Barcelona (Spain), where he obtained the title of Master Ceramist in 1985. Then, between 1985 and 1986, he studied Sculpture at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios also in Barcelona.  

 

In 1997, he traveled to England to perfect his craft and to be able to make his bronze castings in the London workshops.

 

His work uses ceramics to rescue a purely American material, used in pre-Columbian art, elaborating his own language in a contemporary way.
