Founded by Gino Tapinassi in 1954, Ceramiche Tapinassi craft items in local Tuscan clay, continuing the proud traditions of the Tuscan ceramics community. Today, Ceramiche Tapinassi is run by Gino’s sons, who from childhood absorbed his passion for handcrafted ceramics. Their creative output has always been driven by their respect for beautiful aesthetics and artistic forms. They are also inspired by a deep connection to the culture, history and traditions of the picturesque Casentino Valley – a fascinating part of Italy.
The family create wonderful works of art using traditional methods – completing their creations using the painter’s brush. For example, they employ one of the world’s most ancient ceramics techniques to create the cookware that they craft exclusively for AllÓRA. Coiling (or colombino in Italian) involves layering up long strips of clay by hand to shape the beautiful rustic aesthetics of the cookware you find here. And because coiling is performed by hand, each item is entirely unique.Find out more
