Pantoù ceramics is a brand of contemporary artisanal ceramics, founded in Faenza in 2020 by ceramists Giampaolo Santoddì and Ilaria Biffara. The idea to open their own business was first conceived in 2015 in Caltagirone, important centre of Sicilian ceramic art, where the two artisans were born and raised, in close contact with the local workshops. Their purpose is to create innovative and contemporary design ceramics, expressive artworks able to showcase their personalities, freeing themselves from reproducing dated styling cues, yet never forgetting the connection with the history and tradition of the trade. Thus, while their pieces’ design focuses on researching new styles and languages, the actual crafting process involves artisanal methods and techniques. The two ceramists are open to collaborations with other artisans and artists.
