The Artistry

Gabriele Mengoni is the maestro artisan behind this collection. Born in the Umbrian town of Gubbio, Gabriele was drawn to ceramics at a young age. He attended art school, and there he learned everything from the techniques used to make the region's oldest artwork to the ways in which he could experiment with shape and design to craft innovative pieces. Gabriele puts his education to good use every day, as he focuses on exploring ways to honor traditional Italian style while creating original works of art.
