L’arco azzurro

Alberto Giampieri is the whole package when it comes to ceramics. As a child, he began experimenting with moulding his toys, before growing up and transforming his passion into a profession. He trained with several Florentine masters, but he is primarily self-taught. Since 2011, he’s worked in his own workshop, crafting elegant majolica vases and sculptures. He has two main collections and personally oversees every phase, from the potter’s wheel to the glazing, which few others still do today. One is The White Symphony, inspired by early 20th-century Art Nouveau designs and characterized by their delicate sculptural additions, while the other stands out for its eastern-style abstract motifs and decorations.

Terra Crea di Tonino Negri

The fire has marked the clay with its colour and you do not feel the need to dress it in shiny and crystalline polychromatic glazes.
