Faducci

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Faducci, the studio of Solomon Bassoff and Domenica Mottarella, is located in the foothills of the California Sierra Nevada. Surrounded by the forest we create unique handcrafted cement and glass mosaic sculpture.

It is our strong belief that the best civic artwork forges connection between community and local environment. Faducci sculptures are whimsical, colorful and cheerful by design. We create artwork that engages visitors, welcoming them with friendly emotive sculptures. We have accomplished this goal at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle WA, with a life-sized Komodo dragon that is being used as a play structure for thousands of visitors yearly. In Redding, CA., we created various exciting sculptures to enhance the Children’s Garden at Turtle Bay Exploration Park/Sundial Bridge. Our 17 giant sunflowers at Hummingbird Park in Natomas, CA. create a wonderful year round focal point and celebrate the theme of the park. One of our first public art sculptures was a large mosaic frog for the children at George Mark Children’s House the first free standing children’s hospice in the United States in San Leandro California. We created 20 overstuffed concrete arm chairs, dog busts that function as a fountain and two cats as a whimsical addition for the Peninsula Humane Society-SPCA in Burlingame, CA. Faducci has recently completed 5 sculptures commissioned for the Northwest Library in Oklahoma City that were playfully created with children in mind. We are experienced at creating artwork that celebrates the natural environment, while delighting and inspiring the viewer. Our sculpture with its whimsical nature is particularly endearing to the young and the young at heart.

Our creations are uniquely designed with the highest quality materials, primarily hand sculpted cement, and highly reflective applied Italian glass mosaic. We use additional additives in our concrete mix that protect against weather, and in the event of graffiti, assist in its removal. All sculptures are designed for simple maintenance, public safety, longevity and enjoyment. Our work promotes positive feelings and optimism with bright shades of pigmented cement on animated emotive characters. Each one of our sculptures is individually crafted from start to finish by the Faducci team.  Our work is highly specialized taking a certain degree of skill that has taken us years to develop to the level that we transform concrete, a common building material, into sophisticated art. In addition, we wish to leave the touch of the human hand on each and every aspect of a sculpture.  This establishes a deeper sense of connection and relationship for those who come to enjoy the sculpture, acknowledging the genuine human experience that comes from viewing a hand crafted work of art.
