Handmade in Italy since 1919. With nothing but the ruins of an ancient furnace, Arturo Fabbro founded Ceramiche Fabbro, a company that belongs to the history of Italian ceramics masters. Since then, the art of “working clay” has been in the family for 5 generations, with the same enthusiasm, care, and quality that began so long ago.
Ceramiche Fabbro uses an ancient casting method where liquid clay is poured into plaster casts. The plaster absorbs the water of the paste until the desired thickness is reached; then after a drying period, the mold is opened, the piece taken out, and is dried further.
Every design is brushed and shaded directly on a sponge, so the decoration is transferred by hand like a stamp onto the clay. This means the result will be slightly different each time–this is what makes each piece so special and unique. Once the color has dried and the piece has been glazed, it’s fired at 1030°C, where anything can happen, even eventual surprises.
