He learned in the paternal shop the first notions about woodworking, practicing and acquiring the various techniques of material processing, graduating in the field of art as a teacher and collaborating for over thirty years with the most famous Italian toy industries, conceiving, designing and making prototypes in the industrial design for plastic toy. For the last fifteen years he has been focusing on what has always been his passion, thus creating painted wooden art toys. Looking at his old wooden pony, a playmate, he gained the idea of making collecting toys; he chose "whim" accompanied by the image of a pony as a logo of his artistic production, these are small and charming wooden horses, modeled and decorated by hand as in the past.
Currently there are six pony lines of 24cm and five in the Baby group, with dimensions within 15cm, dimensions designed to be easily placed in the furnishings.
My works are the result of the union of the two most important workings of my life. My idea has always been to raise the artistic level of simple wooden toys by making pigeons in the most varied forms, decorated with watercolor technique and intriguing in figuratively defined and personalized educational themes.
In an artistic field, I think of a very interesting and original theme as it is presented in the most varied forms.
Each line: a name is given, an anatomical shape of the pony is studied, whether it is mounted on a rocking or on a wheel, a decorative theme is chosen as a conducting wire, yet it allows to make different interpretations, thus creating all unique pieces; Each opera therefore differs for a fanciful interpretation of ornate and fantastic visions, expressing nature in its most varied forms, enlivening with simple games the memory of an enchanted world that can hardly be revived today.
In addition to increasing brightness and color richness, all works are now finished with gold leaf 24 Kt. At work finished, each work is numbered according to the year of production and progressive number, initialed with the initials of the artist, sealed with logo in lacquer wax, accompanied by a production certificate with photo and statement that the decoration is unique and will never be repeated.
SERGIO MILANI- a sophisticated pictorial composition.
The imagination and the innate creativity of a child combined with the artistic wisdom and mastery of the artist. This is Sergio Milani, an artist-sculptor remembering infantile memories of his soul, thanks to his paternal influence, and for this author of unique and singular works of his kind translated into a toy-shaped art form , one of the most desirable and useful objects in the child's playful world. Playing with it, he can explore and admire by flying infinite imaginations of landscapes, places, objects and shapes of different nature, in his countless decorative and coloristic compositional versions that follow different themes. This artisan masterpiece, ancient but still present, is cared for by the artist in every detail and is meticulously personalized by him in both the form and the subject represented. Thus, the artist's hand and inventiveness take on different production lines with different types of media, but all carefully carved and finished, as evidenced by the use of the golden leaf that makes his horses not just toys but real exclusive art objects. This passion for the world of children combined with its expertise involved and involved the artist in other areas that concern artistic proposals for children, first of all in toys composition and design and in the challenging role of game designers the industry since the '70s where its ability and its lucid imagination is measured and productive but is always aimed at realizing the children's dreams.
Dreams that take the rainbow colors and sparks of stars, blended together with the colors of the sky, give back to those who see and buy for themselves or for others a magical moment of refined pictorial composition.
