More than 150 years ago, the founders of Modigliani were inspired by the rich traditions and artistry of Italian ceramics and began working from their small shop in Rome to bring their customers those beautiful, handmade pieces of functional art. Those inspirations remain the same after four generations.
We bring you these pieces of functional art so that this artistry continues and prospers and does not get lost to faster production methods or lower quality alternatives, and we are committed to the development and support of our very talented artisans ranging from 15 to 70 years of age. Their skills have been passed down over the generations, with each new generation enhancing the art by bringing personal inspirations to its styling, decorating and finishing; expanding what is possible while carrying on the traditions.
With every design choice, every brushstroke and every other step in the process, the passion and skill of our artisans are brought to life. They create unique, functional art inspired by the beauty and passions of Italy using the the same inspirations that have always shaped Modigliani products. The skills of each artisan, from kiln operators and glazers, to the designers and painters, allow each creation to be touched by the hands of many generations who share the same vision: to create a thing of beauty that has a purpose beyond it’s intended use.
We also bring you these pieces to inspire you.
We invite you to explore our collections and let their art and their stories inspire dreams or rekindle memories of adventures in Italy or great moments with friends and family. We also hope that these pieces will spark conversations and create new memories around the table, embracing the true La Grande Vita.
