Pasella Ceramic Workshop has an interesting background of skills and insights. Domenico Pasella from Calangianus, a town in Gallura with an ancient identity and renowned for its typical cork forests, launched the production of cork artefacts destined for the lively tourist trade in the Gallura area in 1972, opening some shops in Costa Smeralda, where he promotes, in addition to his own products, artefacts belonging to all sectors of traditional craftsmanship. The success encountered in particular by the ceramic production led Domenico to expand his activity in 1995, setting up a well-equipped workshop specialised in decorative ceramics. Thanks to the invaluable collaboration of expert potters Domenico launched a collection of glazed ceramics decorated with original motifs resulting from the synergy and experimentation of the working team of expert artisans. Today, thanks also to the invaluable contribution of his son Giovanni who completed his specialised university studies, the workshop is a vibrant handicraft reality with a clear entrepreneurial approach counting various craftspeople and numerous shops along the north coast of Sardinia. All these expert artisans are committed to the realisation of a wide-ranging collection of ceramics and pottery with ever-evolving style and decorations drawing original inspiration from evocative aspects and themes of the tradition of the island.
The collection of Artigianato Pasella includes a wide range of tableware and home décor. It counts many hand-decorated lines, which distinguish themselves for the decorative motif inspired by nature and local traditions. The Pavoncella (lapwing) line, the Rilievi (relief) line, the Intarsi (inlay) line, the Ichnos line, the Scultura (sculpture) line, are just a few examples of the vast collection of decorative pottery and home décor accessories produced by this handicraft workshop.
Lathe-shaping, plate-shaping, casting and manual moulding techniques with slip, engraving, enamelling and brush decorations are performed in the workshop.
