The technique

Constant experimentation is a hall mark of the Rometti workshops, in which complex and sophisticated production techniques are adapted to the specific characteristics of the product: earthenware, stoneware or porcelain.

As regards majolica, for example, Rometti has always used an age old method: objects shaped by hand on the wheel are painted and “frescoed” before being baked ; a special plaster brings out the colours and gives depth to the decorations. A mix of the purest raw materials is used to create extremely fine porcelain. Natural clay is taken from a local quarry, whose origins date back to Roman times. The various production phases in the workshops require highly specialized manual operations: moulding, shaping, casting, enamelling by immersion or spray, and painting. These high quality products are exclusively hand-made and never exactly alike.
