Our Passion for … Ceramopolis
Our Goal is to create an e-museum for all:
- Islamic (Iznik, Kutahya, Canakkale, Persian)
- Italian (Pre/Post 1600, Urbino, Faenza, Napoli, Pesaro, Apuglia, Cerreto, Savona, Bassano)
- Greek (Skyros, Samos, Attica, Rhodos, ICARO & IKAROS, Mytilini, Creta, Philhellenique, Greek Ceramists)
- French (Nevers, Moustiers, Rouen, Louneville, Patronymique, Revolutionnaire, French Ceramists)
- China (Kraak, Imari)
- Holland (Delft), Spanich, Balkans among others and this is the beginning. Let's fly together..
The ‘Figurato’ Maiolica – Montelupo 17th
The approach to the ‘portrait’ image in Montelupo pottery, according to John Mallet, produced results similar in culture and chronology to
those in other pottery towns of the peninsula. The first Montelupo pottery with figurative decoration comes from the late medieval, a production that continued up to mid 15th c.(‘Figurato’ Maiolica plate from the Ariana collection in Geneva Switzerland – prob mid 17th c.)
