The engobe coating is made of mixed clay and metal oxides, colorants and fluxes mixed with siliceous sands, and confers to our artifactsâ€™ surface a peculiar uneven, dotted effect. All Lineasette creations are the result of a deep and passionate research of ceramic techniques and contemporary designs by Giuseppe Bucco and Flavio Cavalli. Every artifact is a small sculpture with pure and essential traits, as if shaped by natural elements. According to Flavio Cavalli and Giuseppe Bucco, every creation needs to meet the following requirements: harmony, balance, joy, freedom of movement. The shape of each object, rough or smooth, matt or glossy, has to be free and harmonious; it has to take shape and become blurred, it has to amaze. The making of every single artifact is personally supervised by the designers, who follow every step of its creation, from its design to the end product, to make sure that, in the process, the quality of each handicraft piece is guaranteed.
