Alessandro Mendini
«The tradition of Vietri ceramics has always been in my mind:
the materials, the brushstrokes,the Mediterranean colors.
Now, finally, the Ceramica Francesco De Maio
offers me the lucky opportunity to create a collection by myself...
A system of Dots, now small, now large and isolated, now aligned vertically or diagonally,
in order to retrace that complex system that for many years has generated the style of Vietri,
with its rare harmonies».

Caratteristiche

Processo produttivo
Puntini decoration is exclusively handmade, piece by piece, on the “Bianco Vietri” glaze, still raw, to be cooked.
It’s remarkable and complex technique. The dots are realized by the passage of a brush that leaves irregular streaks of colour. The streaks in different tonalities are characteristic of this way of working.
In the each small dot it can recognize the expert hand of the master decorators of the Ceramica Francesco De Maio.
