ART AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

THE LIMIT OF DEMARCATION

INTRINSIC VALUE

The dual nature of ceramic utilitarian objects is one of the most captivating aspects to examine in human activities. Indeed, the achievement in resolving the divide between practical concerns and individual expression represents a creative challenge for Artefice Atelier. The manner in which it approaches this theme defines the quality of its artistic perception and ingenuity.

SICILY, OUR STRENGTH

Here, the power of volcanoes merges with a rich and fascinating past, inspiring cultures, traditions, and a vibrant present. This unique place exudes inspiration through its wild beauty, the succession of eruptions, and the history that still resonates in its ancient ruins. With its natural majesty and timeless cultural heritage, Sicily offers endless nourishment for creativity. This island, with its enchanting landscapes and rich culture, is the creative forge of Artefice Atelier, drawing the essence of its works from here. The artistic artifacts, shaped by our master craftsmen, encapsulate the incandescent energy of volcanoes and the depth of ancient Sicilian legends, giving a unique soul to each creation.

TO PERFECTION

One of our key strengths is the continuous exchange of ideas with our clients. Engaging with their thoughts and needs provides essential and irreplaceable inspiration for crafting perpetually new pieces.

 

Each artwork is created with care and love, marked by meticulous attention to detail; it's our working method and an integral part of our identity that we will never betray. The relentless pursuit of new stimuli and original harmonies is fundamental to us, broadening our horizons with artistic expressions that are never ordinary and always experimental. Furthermore, we set ourselves apart through the quality of the raw materials we work with, such as grès and stoneware, suitable for tableware.

 

Every day, we work towards our primary goal: offering our creativity in service to others, concretely translating their desires through our artistic sensibilities.

FROM EARTH TO MAJOLICA

Each piece begins as a pencil sketch, which translates the artist's thoughts. From there, the object takes shape, turning an imaginative image into reality. Skillful hands work with clay and water, almost magically crafting the desired forms.

After a few days of drying in specific environments, the object achieves the so-called "leather hardness" and is then ready for the initial firing at a temperature of approximately 1000°C.

The terracotta is then prepared for decoration, a phase of the production process where the artist expresses their best abilities. Often, it entails giving free rein to imagination and color.

The production process culminates in the second firing at a temperature of approximately 920°C, which enhances the brilliance of the colors and preserves the artwork for centuries.

 

Occasionally, a third firing is necessary for special effects achieved through lusters.
