Infuse your home with some tasteful foreign flavor with this beautiful turtle ceramic mug from Ceramiche Sberna.
Francesco Sberna, the founder of Ceramiche Sberna, was born in Deruta, Italy in 1924. He developed a passion for the production of Italian pottery plates as a child. He studied under the guidance of some of the most important masters of that period, especially Gabriele Bicchioni. They passed down to him the technique of reproduction and the art of creating and renovating the objects.
After working in many of the significant factories of that time, he created his own factory with his wife Maria. Thus, they worked hard and enthusiastically together for all their lives. Nowadays, their daughters, Anna and Franca, manage Ceramiche Sberna to carry on the work and legacy of their parents.
In their factory, you can see the entire production process to transform clay into prestigious ceramic for handmade homeware. Ceramiche Sberna purchases the clay from selected suppliers who extract it from caves and filter it. Once the clay is clean from impurities, the potter skillfully models it on the lathe to create unique pieces.
After the objects dry, there is the first firing at 1000°C which transforms the clay into terracotta; next, the item is glazed. Then, select and very capable artists decorate the items entirely by hand. Most of the patterns are of the Renaissance period. However, the artists often create modern and innovative decors and produce personalized ceramics almost daily.
Finally, after the decoration, the object is ready for a second firing at 900°C to make the colors durable. Throughout the years, Ceramiche Sberna objects have been exported all around the world. Today, you can buy these unique home decor accessories at Maison Numen.
Ceramiche Sberna pottery plates are unique due to their artisanal nature as they are entirely made and decorated by hand. For this reason, the turtle ceramic mug you receive at home may be dissimilar in some minor aspects from what you see in the picture. At the end of the day, these subtle differences make each one of these products an object with meaning.
