The second reason is the creative culture. Once out of the mould, each piece is cleaned and imperfections removed by hand, thence transformed in the kiln into an unchangeable artefact. The decoration is also carried out manually with a combination of enamel paints and crystalline substances using our own formulas in order to create particular reflections and iridescence.
The final firing is performed in muffle ovens, requiring long cycles to bring out the tonal and colour effects. Time is what really characterises our products, even if technology has certainly aided and speeded up the search for innovative solutions. Always the work of human hands, the outcome of great patience and revealed only at the end, our products have the special guarantee of unique pieces of work.
“At the base of a discipline that always seems to escape the perfect control of the technician, there is a ritualistic and extremely precise procedure that follows the rules of an almost alchemic body of knowledge, handed down through the generations.”
