Where beauty is born

In the heart of Deruta, our art workshop is where tradition converges with passion, bringing to life lava stone tables destined to enrich your outdoor spaces. The journey of each piece starts with the meticulous selection of materials, ensuring products are not only a beautiful sight to behold, but also remarkably resistant and long-lasting.

Our artisans are involved in the next step of production. Using techniques passed down through generations, each table is modelled, prepared and decorated by hand. Not only does this artisan approach ensure the uniqueness of each piece, it also expresses all the excellence and authenticity of Italian artisanship.

Personalisation lies at the heart of all that we do. Whether you are looking for a modern touch, or a more traditional allure, each table can be customised to reflect your personal style.

We conclude our process with meticulous quality control, ensuring each table satisfies our high standards before leaving the laboratory.

Meet the artists

Every table created by us arises from the expert hands and tireless passion of our artisans. Each artist at our workshop has a unique story, a profound love for the trade and dedication that transcends the mere crafting of ceramic material and lava stone.

Riccardo Muti

The master of ceramics

Riccardo has spent over two decades perfecting the ceramic art. With a profound knowledge of traditional techniques and an attentive eye on innovation, his work embodies the seamless fusion of past and present. Riccardo affirms that "Ceramics is more than a trade, it is communicating without words, letting each piece do all the talking about its history".

Ivan

The lava stone artist

Specialised in lava stone, Ivan turns uncut blocks of stone into finely decorated works of art. "Each table is a challenge, an opportunity to express the intrinsic beauty of stone", he explains. His capacity to combine strength and delicacy in his work makes him a veritable innovator of the field.
