Darcy Badiali  

“My art is about finding beauty in the process, in the materials and in the completed piece. I am interested in understanding the place of ceramics in not only the art world but the larger world as a whole. Clay is my primary medium, and my work consists predominantly of wheel thrown stoneware vessels. Though the forms have their origin in function, the scale lends itself to sculptural issues of space. The passion that I have for the potter’s wheel provides a visceral approach to creating my work. Forms that I reference are reminiscent of plants, stones, coral and other objects found in nature.The surfaces range from elephant skin, to craters to egg shells.” - Darcy Badiali His works are at the permanent collections of Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for the Arts, Alta Loma, CA, American Museum of Ceramic Art, Los Angeles, CA, Kathryn H. Herberger Museum, Tempe, AZ, Daum Museum of Art, Sedalia, MO, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS, Kansas City Art Institute, Kansas City, MO, Archie Bray Foundation, Helena, MT, and in Shigaraki, Japan in the Shiro Otani Collection.

"With his Zen spirit and Brutalist art approach,

Badiali fits us more than I can imagine.

The heart and soul of his work in a large scale format takes your breath away."
