Francesco De Maio

Francesco De Maio

Campania, Italy

Ceramist

In 1963, Francesco De Maio established his workshop of handcrafted ceramics, hoping to keep alive the artistic heritage of Vietri sul Mare, a small town on the Amalfi Coast. His artistic tile-making craftsmanship is widely praised, particularly for his "riggiole" tiles used for churches' floors and dwellings of noblemen. De Maio reinterprets the family tradition by designing collections that align with new tastes and trends. His handmade ceramic tiles are decorated with classical motifs, using traditional enamels that add an exclusive finish to his pieces.
