Where everything happens
Ricciocaprese’s laboratory is based in the heart of Naples, the birthplace of the famous Capodimonte art school of artisans and decorators.
Every creation starts from an idea of Ricciocaprese’s Creative director, Imma.
From a small sketch on paper, the idea becomes reality in the skilled hands of Ricciocaprese artisans and ceramics decorators.
They first create the “unfired ceramic” that, after a complex process of drying, loses its ductility reaching a firm and durable state.
The piece, once completely dried out, goes in the oven for its first “biscuit firing”. Then it gets hand-decorated, glazed and put in the oven again.
All the beautiful Ricciocaprese colours are hand-mixed, giving each piece a unique touch.
