Antonino Sciortino: A Modern Blacksmith in Milan

January 16, 2013

Milan-based artist Antonino Sciortino, a former dancer, expresses his lyrical side in his iron works.

Sciortino, who was born in Palermo, began working in his father's shop at the age of eight. His passion for dance led him to Rome, where he worked as a choreographer (his clients included Ricky Martin); during his spare time, he continued to design works in iron that "mix experiences and emotions," as he says. "Depending on the piece, it takes up to three weeks for me to finish. I work alone and all pieces are made by hand." To see more of his work, go to Antonino Sciortino.

N.B.: Belgian company Serax offers an array of designs by Sciortino; go to Serax to see the range.
