Ceramiche Santalucia

Ceramiche Santalucia

Michele Santalucia works in what is his profession as a ceramist with three main parameters: study, continuous research and a strong passion, enriched by excellent manual skills. In 1994 he graduated from the "Nicola da Guardiagrele" Institute in Chieti, immediately starting to work for various ceramic companies in Abruzzo. After these work experiences in Italy, he decides to leave for Spain, more precisely Seville, where he learns new techniques and artistic expressions, working in historical companies of Andalusian classical art.

In 2006, he returned to Italy and moved to Francavilla al Mare, in the province of Chieti, where he opened his shop and where he still works today. Here he ranges between creations of personal shapes and new decorations, combining the classic stylistic elements of Andalusian ceramics ("cuerda seca") and the typical decorations of "azulejos", with the traditional Abruzzese style, giving life to completely original modern creations and creating works of the classic Abruzzo style.

Influenced by the great Abruzzese ceramics of Castelli and Rapino and by great potters such as Grue and Cascella, the mixture with historical ceramic painting and his excellent dexterity make him an artist of decoration; a very evident feature in his works, exclusively made and painted by hand according to the techniques of ceramic processing.

Michele also takes particular account of the importance of the choice of raw materials, from clay to the ceramic glazes used, which have always characterized the elegance and excellence of his works, of the highest quality and refinement. Unique pieces and small series, the result of continuous research into complex styles of contemporary taste.
