Handmade in Tuscany: a day among the ceramics of Virginia Casa

Today we’re going to tell you about our recent visit to the Virginia Casa production facility in Tuscany, where we went to select the next collections to offer you. As always, we are greeted by Gabriele, one of the founding partners of the company. He tells us that Virginia Casa, regrettably, is one of the few firms to survive the invasion of industrial mass production. In this region, once rich with artisanal businesses, Virginia Casa is the only one that still makes handcrafted tableware, and much more. Entering the factory, we’re immediately struck by the orderliness of the stacks...

Discovering the world of Glass Dinnerware

What we perhaps don’t think of are the other techniques apart from glass blowing – like fusing, casting and glass sculpture, to name a few. The results of these applications are often surprising, such as when a glass plate appears to made of ceramic. To understand how this is done, we filmed Emanuela, one of the artisans at Studio Forme Roma, through the process of making a sculpted glass plate from our Bambù collection. The video below shows just how...

How to choose ceramic dishes: tips and tricks

How to choose ceramic dishes: tips and tricks

Passau is a pretty baroque town in Lower Bavaria – Germany – at the crossway of three famous rivers: Danube, Inn and Ilz. That is why it is also called Dreiflüssestadt or “City of Three Rivers”. Home of a notable University, the town is surrounded by rolling hills and forests. Driving up one of those narrow country roads, we reach Hans Fischer’s house where, until some times ago, you were welcomed by sheep, goats, chickens and a horse. Next to the house, in Hans’ workshop, there is always a coming and going: his five children visiting, students from all over...
