Amadou’s stone bowls: a unique art gift, handmade in Italy for Artis Limited

Stone Bowl made by Amadou Niang for Artis Limited
Amadou Niang makes the most amazing stone bowls. They are carved in stone and then glazed with pigment of brilliant hues. They are wonderful examples of handmade home design and functional art! Amadou Niang was born in Dakar, Senegal, in 1961, and that’s where he completed his apprenticeship in sculpture. His teacher was his brother, Babacar Niang. He worked in his sculpture studio in Dakar. He then went to France to work with Macoura Niang, his younger brother, and it is there that he heard about Pietrasanta. He came for a visit and was moved by the opportunities to explore his art. He’s lived in and around Pietrasanta, for 5 years, where he continues to develop himself as sculptor and artist and produce unique handmade art gifts.
