THE BUSINESS

Training:
The artisan Massimo Carbone, uncommon in his generation, followed the antique techniques and craft of the Imprunetian School through a ten (10) year internship with one of the greatest masters Mario Mariani, “cotto” artist par excellence called respectfully, the last Etruscan.

Tradition:
A young apprentice from the oldest school transitions into the third Millennium with traditional methods like Columbine allowing expert hands to meet clay manipulated without the use of tools to fashion unique works; and attention to detail for customers wanting to personalize traditional pieces with inscriptions, dates and symbols.

Products:
The production of Massimo Carbone is not just typical pots and vases it surpasses all boundaries utilizing the potential offered by “cotto” from Impruneta. He great resistance and porous quality give an antique look by way of a thin film of mold that accentuates the irregularities of the handmade piece’s surface. This increases the value, as time goes by without damage to the piece. Visiting our showroom you can admire a beautiful range of products; sinks, wall hangings, tables, fireplaces and on and on, to small trinkets that are purely for décor. An original and suggestive collection of hand painted tiles and clocks by the local artist Arianna Nesi complements the collection of two Imprunetian artists in offering fine gifts and authored souvenir. If you would like to enrich your home or your garden with a touch of elegance, come and visit the “Fornace di Massimo Carbone” which will offer you the creativity and experience nestled in the color and tradition of Tuscany.
