Le Mani
Le Mani collection made by the Manufactory in the ‘30s, combining art style and interpretation in unique limited edition items. The simple abstract shape of a hand is modelled in the round using industrial moulds for rubber gloves.
Passeggiata Archeologica
Passeggiata Archeologica motif represents Ginori’s classicism, evoking the style of the eighteenth-century, the age of the Grand Tour, with a reference to the Archaeological Path through the excavations in Rome inaugurated in 1918.
The Prospettica orcino vase, re-edited by Ginori, is characterized by the illusionistic effect of the relief. Entirely hand-decorated, in decal, the ‘double cut’ technique is used in order to maintain the same thickness as the framing of the cells.
La Venatoria
La Venatoria motif, inspired by Gio Ponti’s drawings, narrates a deer hunt featuring amazon warriors. The scenes appear on the plates in an order that tells a story, from chasing the prey to carrying it away.
La Convesazione Classica
The motif in La Conversazione Classica represents allegorical figures alluding to the Arts, such as Music and Literature, in Art Deco style.
Le Mie Donne
Le Mie Donne is a motif, which sums up the classic style of the Art Deco. The Women on the Clouds were the first to be created and presented at the Monza exhibition in 1923.
Donne e Architetture
The motif appearing on the Donne e Architetture vase is inspired by the female figures Gio Ponti created for the series, underlining the dialogue between the silhouettes and the complex architecture of ancient inspiration, in which we may recognise citations of the pyramids and of Roman monuments such as the Coliseum.
