Contemporary ceramics made with traditional techniques.
Pantoù ceramics is a brand founded in 2020 in Faenza by two passionate Sicilian ceramists: Ilaria Biffara and Giampaolo Santoddì. The idea of creating a new reality was born in 2015, in Caltagirone - renowned Sicilian ceramic art center - where the two young people were born and raised in close contact with local workshops. The game, the research, the experimentation and the desire to tell the tradition with new shapes and colors, pushed the duo to undertake this path in constant updating thanks to collaborations with artists and other artisan realities.
Their commitment "We believe that keeping an ancient craft alive contributes to the enhancement of the Italian cultural heritage. This is why we are committed to the creation of contemporary ceramics using primordial methods."
Creativity presents the collections:
Collection of ceramic vases shaped on the lathe and glazed with an airbrush. The series boasts sinuous silhouettes that draw inspiration from the Chrysalis in the phase of transformation from caterpillar to butterfly. Crisalide is a combination of traditional techniques and contemporary taste. The shapes of the vases are nine and the chromatic variants are six: yellow, red, blue, purple, white and black.
Collection of wall or table ceramic plates and bowls shaped on the lathe and hand painted. Each piece is a symbolic window that allows a view towards blue skies populated by bright clouds. A perfect decoration to add a touch of light to any room. The colors that characterize the collection are the result of meticulous chromatic and material research.
Each piece is unique and unrepeatable.
