Production of ceramic lamps


Tradition and modernity

Ceramic is a fascinating art with a rich history, and has evolved over time from manual techniques to the use of advanced technologies that help speed up production. We feature this ancient art in our collections while attempting to remain as faithful to manual production techniques as possible, in order not to lose that personal touch, attention to detail and craftsmanship that is part of us and which we cannot neglect.

The result is a stylish, beautiful and light product, which is only possible with this type of process.

Ceramic processing method

We shall describe to you how our pottery is made in a few lines. A mixture of water and clay is poured into a plaster mould. The plaster absorbs the water, together with some of the clay. As the clay hardens on the inner wall of the mould, a different thickness can be obtained depending on the absorption time. When the clay is sufficiently thick, the excess is removed from the mould, leaving a hollow shaped product inside it.

After some time, the piece solidifies and is extracted. The next step is finishing, during which the object is manually cleaned of all possible imperfections and then “sponged” with water. The end result should be a smooth and polished object. It then undergoes drying and the first firing, followed by subsequent firings to make products that are glazed or decorated with the “lustre” technique.
