QUINTESSENZA CERAMICHE – The name
Dal latino “quinta-essentia”.
According to Aristotle the quintessence was aether, so called because in ancient times the alchemists believed in the existence of just four elemental spheres: terra (earth), aqua (water), aer (air), and ignis (fire). Above the sphere of fire it was posited that there was a purer and more refined substance that bound the other four elements to itself: the quintessence, or fifth element.
Quintessenza Ceramiche: the highest and purest expression of ceramic art
“Our aim was to express sensations, feelings and styles through the language of ceramic art. We combined shapes, colours and finishes to awaken curiosity in the observer. We embarked on a voyage in search of opposites, minimalism and decoration, sophistication and simplicity, chiaroscuro, light and shade, patterns and geometrical rigour. We were striving to propose pathways and new ideas, but the underlying intention is to transfix the observer and unleash his or her creative energy. Our mission is to engender emotion.”
