  • The Pecora collection is designed as a metaphore to tell about a people, Sardinia's people, traditionally committed to pastoralism, that has become in time the symbol of the workshop's production.

  • Elegant and original, these bases for lamps are lathe-shaped and decorated with a unique design inspired by traditional local costumes, lace and confectionery. Entirely handcrafted and decorated with enamel and pure gold, they are part of a rich line of coordinated décor items.

  • The personal and recognisable graphic trait in the harmonious oblong lines of these white ceramic plates reveals fine drawings of marine animals, realised conveying evocative aesthetics.

  • Inspired by primeval art, the oval centerpiece dish is made of black ceramic and features a contemporary taste. Made entirely by hand using the bucchero technique, this decorative and functional object is presented as a unique piece, with its irregular shape and diverse decorations.

  • The regal figure of the warrior on horseback, in ceramic, enamelled so as to create fine chromatic effects and iridescent gold shine, distinctive of Franco Scassellati’s production, is inspired by the archaic Nuragic culture rendered with a dynamic style.

Il settore

Local pottery production started during the Neolithic age, featuring peculiar characteristics that evolved during the Nuragic age. Neolithic pottery productions explored the female body, rounded also in pottery production, being a representation of the Mother goddess. Nuragic pottery featured simple and stylized designs, a tribute to the strength of war.


In the following ages, the regular exchange of imported pottery, linked to the interaction of different cultures with Sardinia, made it difficult to define what local production really was, since production became a self-sufficient expression of modern age, only when stylistic features and technical procedures were define and kept unchanged until recent times.


For instance, terracotta was slipped and glazed. Few and functional models were lathe-crafted: pitchers, marigas, containers, sciveddas, pans, pingiadas, flasks, frascus, bowls, discus, and other types of pots and pouring receptacles.


The setting is rural and pastoral. They are objects of daily use, for the transportation and and storage of water, baking, the preparation of desserts and food products. Yet, embellishments and expressive characterizations are also used. The festive versions are used during solemn occasions, anniversaries, rituals, and are part of the set of votive tools. They are made by the most skilled figuli, using graphite and decorated with plastic additions, plant motifs and the figures of saints and other religious and good-luck symbols.



These productions that belong to the local material culture, together with the productions of other sectors such as hand-made weaving, jewelry, carving and basket weaving, share a secret language, and intimate and evocative jargon.
