Arts and materials
The Carré centerpiece is made entirely by hand in Italy, in a traditional factory with a long history of expertise.
To design it, a mold is first created and then the ceramic is delicately poured, fired and removed by hand. In the mold, a grid is engraved which will serve as a guide to the craftsman.
The piece will then be painted and it is by hand that the craftsman will redraw the grid piece by piece with a specific tool using the spolvero technique.
Finishing is done in several steps and firings to achieve a play of matter between a matte exterior and a shiny interior
Marrying the curved lines representative of the painter's work with the grid pattern so contrasting in the painting, the Carré centerpiece is a strong and subtle piece at the same time. The bold colors chosen to dress it are directly inspired by the color palette of the painting and finish off the character of the Carré centerpiece.
