The careful and refined manufacture of the Ceramiche Sofia majolica tiles, characterized by the lathe, the double firing of the terracotta and the glazing of the biscuit, as the basis for the final manual decoration, makes the ceramic material resistant and versatile for every use. In fact, in addition to representing an interesting decorative wall element, these precious artifacts can also be used as a centerpiece, cake holder or empty pockets.

The process of creating our ceramics is divided into various meticulously curated phases, ensuring that each finished product is a unique and eternal work of art.

100% artisanal ceramic

For almost 20 years Sofia La Maiolica of Caltagirone has been involved in the artisanal production of unique majolica pieces, decorated and modeled by hand. They are inspired by the classic style of Caltagirone ceramics from all eras, made with unique glazes that recall the origins of the oriental world in which the colors were produced by the fusion of kaolin-based glazes. The manufacturing process that leads to the creation of our ceramics is divided into six important phases:

Turning, Drying, First firing, Enamelling, Decoration and Aging .

For each of these phases we dedicate the utmost care to every detail so that the final product is the result of a unique, inimitable and unaltered work over time. The main feature of purchasing a non-industrial product is precisely this: owning a unique product .
