AFFRESCO Pictography Collection
What is an “Affresco”?
Any art lover as well as anyone that visited Italy must have had the opportunity of appreciating an affresco painting since most prominent ancient Roman paintings consist of affresco; as do the holy stories depicted within medieval churches; and so too are the magnificent decorations found within the halls of villas dating from the fifth, sixth and seventh centuries.

The affresco painting method is the basis for the most impressive mural works of Italian art and is considered to be the most widely used artistic technique during the Renaissance period by world known artists such as: Michelangelo, Raffaello, Signorelli and Piero della Francesca.
The affresco technique requires a resolute sleight of hand as painting an affresco demands that the painter be skilled and decisive as well as being able to paint over large surface areas.
Affresco was often created together with dry layers of water colors, or even with oil or wax and has been used for centuries within Mediterranean countries and is the longest-lived painting technique within history.

What is the “Pictography” Technique?
Pictography is a method for printing affresco reproductions on Mural Material, Canvas and Wood Panels, created by Mr. Stefano Lazzari and patented by the Bottega Artigiana Tifernate.
Throughout pictography, any artistic painting can be reproduced in any size.

  • Product Care for Dinnerware and Tabletop products.
    The crazing effect - With repeated use, earthenware products have a tendency to "craze" (forming minuscule lines in the glazing). The crazing is the nature of earthenware, and has no significant effect on the ceramics and sometimes it is a much sought after effect.

    Thermal Shock and cracking - Avoid sudden temperature changes - A thermal shock is the fracturing effect that occurs when ceramic objects are rapidly either heated or cooled and it may crack any earthenware plate.
  • The beauty of imperfection - Because each piece of Majolica and Ceramic is individually crafted, you will notice slight variations in color and size and occasionally you will note paint smudges, fingerprints and looseness of lids.
    These variances should not be considered as imperfections, but as evidence of fine, hand-crafted work.
