The manufacture of the ceramic is an art hand down from father to son, just like our Company. The "EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOP”, gives the opportunity to learn this ancient art and see it how materially is made by their hands, through the shaping processes, finishing, firing, glazing and decoration, the latter, the highest expression of the ceramic.
