Meet the Maker: Arturo Fabbro founded ‘Ceramiche Fabbro’ in 1919. The family has passed on their art and passion to over 4 generations, moving forward in today’s needs, while staying true to their roots. Each piece is made with the same care, the same attention to details and the same daily effort to improve. Inspired by simplicity, but rich in history and culture, we’re proud to have this artistic pottery part of our collection. She’s a "Unik" beauty.
A side story: There was once a color so beautiful that only royalty were allowed to see it. The common folk didn’t know it, but this green was one of those “ish” colors with no clear descriptive word. It was an imprecise color, found only on special ceramics and created by a thinly applied glaze that transformed iron oxide from ferric to ferrous iron as it fired in the kiln. The green-ish, gray-ish pottery emerged from the fire with a hint of brown and a fine crackle that supposedly reminded those early worshipers of imprecise beauty of jade. Later, this green would go by the name “celadon” but for centuries in China it was known only as mi se meaning “mysterious color.”
