Fiorenzo Berardozzi is one half of CBFB Tablescapes. Together with Chip Burr, Berardozzi founded CBFB in 2012 as a collaboration between Ceramicist and Chef. Since that time he has worked with some of the top restaurants in the Charleston, South Carolina area and even with Michelle and Barack Obama. He is indeed, a master of his craft.
"I am an observer. I break things down and look from different points of view. My sculpture and tableware share that perspective. When I design a collection for a restaurant or a patron, I interview them. The art is connecting ideas to clay.
Clay remembers how it was shaped before the fire. Memories have dimensions, place, and play. After the fire, a plate is just a plate until it is used. It is play that allows it to continue to change.
Play has many definitions, most of which involve a physical motion. For me, play is also the movement and direction of thought. It gives me the freedom and curiosity to see the world in a different way.
Be happy with choices by understanding why they were made."
