Giacomo Alessi

Ceramicist 'Alessi' has long been hand crafting stunning ceramic artefacts in Sicily, Italy.
Somewhat unknown until recently, the exquisite and original ceramic pieces (most particularly the infamous head vases) have become a hallmark and are found in some of the most prestigious ceramic exhibitions, boutiques and homes around the world.

So who is the talented man behind these beautiful faces?
 
Giacomo Alessi was born in the beautiful town of Caltagirone, Sicily where he still lives and creates his masterpieces.
Caltagirone itself is well regarded as 'the city of ceramics', where many Artists learn their craft from ancient family techniques and traditions. While Alessi holds onto his family traditions, he also takes pride in researching modern materials and techniques which make his work a perfect culmination of modernism and tradition. 
 
Along with his wife Giovanna, they founded Alessi Ceramiche, a brand producing unique, colourful and visually impactful pieces telling a Sicilian story of their own.

We're so proud to have been the first Australian stockist and are committed to bringing you your little piece of Sicily - contact us should you wish to customise the colour and size.
