The mix of people, civilizations and traditions created a unique identity and artistic production, in this irresistible island.

Ceramics have been produced in Sicily since the most ancient times.

The Sicilian artisans create masterpieces starting from natural material, like clay, using patterns and themes which are part of the tradition of the land.

In their decorative appearance, Sicilian ceramics are very elementary. The hands are the fundamental tools of the artisans, who model and paint clay, creating objects still contemporary in times of  such advanced technology.

Ceramists have a spontaneous taste for beauty and passion for the things they inherited from their ancestors.

 

"CERAMISTS ARE ABLE TO SEE BEAUTY WHERE OTHERS WOULD SIMPLY PASS AND LOOK AWAY."
