Pizza! As a pizza professional you know how much the world loves pizza. And the Pizzaiolo, the master who creates pizza deserves to be celebrated. Now sculptor Jeff Tritel has done just that. He has created “Pizzaiolo,” a limited edition bronze sculpture celebrating Pizzaiolos everywhere! “Pizzaiolo” captures the art of the dough. Our Pizzaiolo is spinning pizza dough and that spin is shown in the spin of his body.

Here are Jeff’s words about his inspiration for  “Pizzaiolo,”

There’s an element of magic in spinning pizza dough and for me, images of joy, wonder, skillful execution and old world charm appear in my mind’s eye. To capture the feeling of spinning dough in a sculpture, I’ve given our chef a radical body twist that adds torque to the image. While I was working on the design I had visions of wide-eyed children, mesmerized by the spinning pizza dough and thinking, “this is soooo cool.” I know that for me the idea of spinning dough is so compelling that the spinner of that dough deserves to be immortalized in bronze.

“Pizzaiolo” is currently in pre-production. This means that the wax design is complete and we expect to have the first finished bronzes ready to deliver approximately March 1. During this pre-production time, we are offering “Pizzaiolo” at a special introductory price of $1,300 which includes the finished signed and numbered bronze sculpture and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist. “Pizzaiolo” will be cast in a limited edition of only 200. That means that only 200 lucky individuals will ever be able to own “Pizzaiolo.” To be one of the lucky few, please visit our website.
