San Francisco sculptor Cork Marcheschi has taken a break from his light and motion inspired public art projects to indulge his long fascination with Art Deco objects and produced a book valuable on many levels. Ostensibly written for an admittedly narrow audience, collectors, the hundreds of richly colored photographs, many of them full page, immediately lend the book a far wider appeal. Anyone flipping through the pages will be amazed by the beauty of the art which is the focus here, enamel Art Deco vases produced by the French studio of Camille Fauré over a seventy year period beginning in the 1920s. But don't expect an academic treatment here. For truly astounding is the story Mr. Marcheschi relates about how these pieces were produced, and thus his apt inclusion of the words Impossible Objects in the book's title. For it is his contention that vases of the kind and beauty turned out by Atelier Fauré can no longer be produced anywhere. So this, then, is also the story of a technology which has now become lost. Much like various forms of heavier-than-air flight developed in the early years of aviation or steam powered automobiles that vanished from American roadways shortly after World War I (thank you, Standard Oil), here is the story of how enamel vases of singularly spectacular luminosity and design were produced by the artisans of a single studio in the porcelain and enamelware producing center of Limoges, artisans who possessed a special know-how that died with them. The reader is given a hands on treatment of the subject by a man who works with his hands and who has an abiding love for his subject. The fact that Mr. Marcheschi also possesses impressive academic credentials, having taught at the University of California Berkeley, San Francisco Art Institute and Minneapolis College of Art, only broadens the book's appeal because he is able to provide the unique context of the Fauré studio within the evolution of modern art in the first half of the 20th --Fine Art Registry
