FOS Ceramiche

FOS Ceramiche is an Art and Design Factory that has been creating handmade porcelain objects in Faenza since 1987. Faenza is world famous for its ceramic production: Faenza-faïence. The ceramic art flourished in Faenza, the very centre of pottery production, since 13th century. FOS is the acronym of Form-Object-Surface, three notions that reflect the philosophy of our production: quality is an imperative, research has no limits, details are carefully planned. Porcelain is the raw material: old and new manufacturing technologies attribute unique technical and aesthetic features to it. Mechanical resistance and hardness of the ceramic body, both obtained by a high firing temperature of 1250 °C, coexist with the chromatic effects of the glazed surfaces. Noble metals, such as gold, platinum and silver, are applied by hand on the surface where they are fixed via meticulous firing process. For a classic material like ceramic, the design of the collections provides new standards giving emphasis to the biscuit, that is the unglazed porcelain. Geometric as well as natural stylized forms - the "Nature reduced to essentials", said Henry Moore , play with stripes, reliefs, and bands where colours contrast the sculpted and smoothed absolute white of the porcelain. Our deep knowledge of the use of this material enables us to create an unlimited number of white variations only visible when our precious material is “bathed in light”. Every object we make reflects the constant equilibrium between the handicraft and its design and brings engraved on it our trademark and the Made in Italy mark.
