The Artistic Division of the Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola is a real artisan workshop, a magical place where gestures, memories and culture can still transform a piece of clay into a beautiful vase, following the tradition of “made in Italy”.
In such a modern and industrial context as that of Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola, the production of artistic majolica today represents a part of ancient life where everything is as it was once upon a time: skilful hands that mould the clay to make products decorated with brush strokes that are full and light at the same time in a 1700’s frame of inspiration and taste.
The past, rich in ornamental shapes and motifs is relived in the floral decoration that characterises the current production of Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola Artistic Division.
In “I Fiori”, we show the five main decorations that celebrate this theme, the absolute protagonist being bright brushstrokes, brilliant colours and versatile aesthetic solutions where simplicity turns into elegance.
An exclusive collection, with its roots in the ceramic art of the early years of the last century. Each item displays great attention to detail. Delicate and voluptuous shapes flow over the glossy surface of the Damine, dream-like figures dressed up in taffeta and crinoline. At the very start of the 20th century the refined products created by the ceramic artist Nonni enjoyed considerable success.
Some of those patterns from Faenza are today brought back to production by the Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola flanked by particular features evoking the atmosphere of the illustrated postcards of that time.
Inspired by the ancient tradition of the highway shrine Madonnas that watched over the crossroads in villages and towns, a collection that rediscovers the passion of sacred art revisited by popular culture.
