Ceramica Design Italia creates very exclusive ceramic glazed lava stone work surfaces that are a masterpiece of Italian artisan craftsmanship for daily use—beauty and art in the service of everyday life.
We begin our production on Mount Etna, Sicily, with the careful hand selecting of the finest lava stone in the world. Forged by the three elements earth, fire, and wind, our eternal lava stone is harder than granite and far more resistant.
Once the lava stone is cut to the desired shape, we begin our intensive process of removing impurities, filling minute holes on the surface, smoothing out and sealing the stone.
Subsequently, the cured lava stone is hardened by fire in our traditional kilns in temperatures reaching over a 1000 degrees Celsius (1832 Fahrenheit) for over 5 days.
Consequently, our master artisans utilize a series special spraying techniques to cover the stone with several layers of glaze, which gives our robust lava its ceramic character and our intense colors.
Fine master artists hand-paint our products in their entirety. With every brush stroke, they poor their soul and emotions over the ceramic canvas.
The glazed lava stone enters the kiln for a second time in temperatures reaching over a 1000 degrees Celsius (1832 Fahrenheit) for another 5 days.
Our working processes allows the lava stone to merge with the ceramic crystals on a molecular level, each strengthening the other to create a product that will defy the normal wear and tear of everyday use, indoors and out.
In Deruta, our 800 years of ceramic tradition transform our lava stone into a work of art that will last for generations. Our artisanal tradition and traditional kills merge the most beautiful ceramic crystals with the eternal stone. The outcome is a heirloom products just like the works of art that Deruta displays in New York’s Metropolitan Museum and London’s British Museum.
