The art of manufacturing ceramic
Fire and air make the clay become solid ceramic, but at the same time they bind the glazes and colors to the product forever in a marriage of elements that return unique works of art.
And finally the water, which since ancient times symbolizes life, is used in ceramic to mix the doughs and dissolve the colors, an element that makes malleable to the hands and art of man what nature originally presents us as hard and not malleable.
But our ceramic, once out of the oven, still in its raw state and still in the color of the earth, still has a long way to go in order to boast the name of real Ceramica di Vietri ... in fact, glazing and skill still await you hand of our Decorators to be painted by hand.
The particular enamel used is the typical white Vietri enamel with a semitransparent dirty white color which gives the colors used subsequently a brilliance effect, typical of the ancient Vietri production.
The colors used are part of an ancient and severe specification, they are all water based and are all non-toxic, also intended for dishes for food use.
Our creations present decorations that are inspired by the Vietri tradition, but also do not disdain new decorations that propose a careful review of the same.
The Second Cooking
The second firing is the slowest, but perhaps also the most delicate, the one where all the mastery, wisdom and experience of the Masters must be realized to give life to unique pieces of Artistic Ceramics, where bright colors come to life, to give emotions that are renewed every time you admire them.
The earth that takes shape in your hands ... a unique emotion that has been handed down for generations.
