Large Raphaelesque plate with a scene inspired by a Gainsborough painting

28 December 2018 · Categoria Artistic ceramics

This large, hand-painted Raphael style plate with a scene inspired by Thomas Gainsborough’s painting “Conversation in a Park” is now available in our e-commerce. Around the eighteenth-century scene, 7 medallions on an elaborate of leaves present small raphaelesque – little dragons and dolphins – created on the designs of the ceramist Giovanni Pretolani and painted in bright colors. The medallions stand out against the nuances of the leaves, ranging from spring green to autumn browns.

It is a unique piece, particularly valuable for the great effort required both in terms of decorative capacity and for the hours of work required. Once exposed, you will spend long moments staring at it to catch every detail of its minute decorations.

The Cinquecento of Caravaggio and Raphael on display at the San Domenico Museums … and in our ceramic workshop!

31 January 2018 · Categoria Artistic ceramics

“The Eternal and the time between Michelangelo and Caravaggio” is the new exhibition of the San Domenico Museums in Forlì to be held from 10 February to 17 June 2018 in the convent church of San Giacomo Apostolo, freshly restored. The Cinquecento, a century that saw the dawn of the Renaissance and the appearance of a new current, Mannerism, as well as Michelangelo and Caravaggio, will be Rahpael, Parmigianino, Vasari and many others (the list is very long!).

After having filled your eyes with the wonderful works of these artists of the sixteenth century, we invite you to rediscover the same atmosphere by visiting our exhibition of artistic ceramics. The bond between the ceramists and the painters was solid from the beginning, as demonstrated by the works of the great Xanto Avelli (1486-1542), whose ceramics bear the marks of masters of the period such as Raphael, Mantegna and Parmigianino.

We at La Vecchia Faenza, like Xanto Avelli, also have our reference painters who are a source of continuous inspiration. As shown in the painting at the center of this dish, taken from the “Boy bitten by a lizard” by Caravaggio.

Art Nouveau and Art Deco ceramics

30 March 2017 · Categoria Artistic ceramics

Spring is the season when nature renews itself. We too have decided to renew ourselves, alongside our production of traditional ceramics with some pieces inspired by Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.

Unlike traditional ceramics, for which the designs and patterns are inspired by the pottery of the past, these are inspired by the paintings of the 20s and 30s of the twentieth century.

Source of inspiration were also the recent events and exhibitions at the International Ceramics Museum (MIC) of Faenza and the San Domenico Museum in Forlì, dedicated precisely to the liberty and deco styles. Two styles for the temporal proximity mingling into each other in a pleasant alternation of sinuous lines and square shapes.

Here you can observe two plates and three eggs painted with delicate colors and figures of romantic inspiration. The dishes, 30 cm in diameter, are one of the most common and representative forms of our ceramics; the eggs have been achieving in the vicinity of Easter and can become valuable and original centerpieces for your living rooms.

The first course depicts a cat in an imaginary garden. The cat, as well as a pet beloved, always fascinates and surprises for being wild but outgoing, smart and sweet at the same time. In the colorful ceramic eggs next to the plate, you can see two women in attitudes otherwise evocative of love and romance.

Raphaelesque: just made an amphora and a tray

31 January 2017 · Categoria Artistic ceramics

We have just completed two pieces meticulously decorated in the style Raffaellesco, one of the jewels of our production flowers.

The Raffaellesco Faenza is inspired by the pictorial style of Raffaello Sanzio, in particular for the purity of the human figures and for landscaping with grotesque, also known as Raphael (always inspired by the designs adopted by Raphael).

Our Raphaelesque is reworked in a very personal way by Silvagni workshop. It requires great precision and commitment to achieve very definite designs, in some cases miniaturized, such as rural scene on the back of the amphora.

Italian pottery for United States customers

1 December 2016 · Categoria Artistic ceramics

Our online store www.CeramicaFaenza.it brings artistic ceramics La Vecchia Faenza and Laura Silvagni to Italy and to United States.
A new Renaissance for the Faenza ceramic art
In the Renaissance, Faenza became famous for its ceramic art. Majolica produced in Faenza was successfully exported throughout Europe, so that “Faenza” and “tiled” have become synonymous in many languages, including French (faïence) and English (faience).

Armed with this glorious past, we propose the same goal now as then: bring our crafts in homes not only of Italians, but also of the Americans! We are aware that the market has become more fragmented and competitive, and also the clientele has changed: more careful and demanding, but also less willing to spend in the manner of a nobleman of the time. It’s funny to note how, in this scenario changed profoundly, we can bring the world a product radically traditional but eternal as our artistic ceramics thanks to modern sales channels, our e-commerce in the first place.
