FOS Ceramiche:History of a CeramicsManufacturerconstantly evolving


Faenza: ImportantCeramic Center sincethe 13th Centuryin Italy

Our story begins in Faenza for a reason. Since ancient times, the city has developed a unique attention and awareness for ceramic art, becoming synonymous with majolica (or Faience, meaning glazed earthenware). It has been a crossroads of knowledge and an epicenter for pottery thanks to the school of ceramics and the largest international museum in the world dedicated to this art form. Here met Piero Mazzotti and Andri Ioannou founding, over 30 years ago, their ceramics studio that, before being “Made in Italy” was proudly “Made in Faenza”.

FOS (acronym for Form, Object, Surface) is known in the ceramic scene for the production of porcelain. After the first experiments with stoneware, glass and bronze, we fell in love with the purity of biscuit (unglazed porcelain), capable of exalting the most delicate textures.
