Ceramics is one of the oldest rustic activities of history and humanity but it doesn’t belong to the past traditions of the Ticino region. Probably imported from North, the work of ceramic nowadays is quite expanded and in some cases reaches a high level of excellence, even recognized out of the Ticino region and abroad.
Among the actual productions, we can find table and ornamental ware, tea, coffee and liquor services, jugs, vases, fruit vases, and decorative objects, shaped by hand or modelled on a wheel. Instead, clay is a tradition which has been developed in the past mainly in the Mendrisiotto. In this region we can find even today, artisans who produce vases, tiles, etc.
