Future inspired by the past, transforming matter into something unique
The search for shiny and gaudy effects has been associated with beauty and opulence. In the past, since early Babylonians, the first glazed terracotta artisans, the development of colored glossy glazes had led to the creation of projects of great magnificence.
Over time glazes and enamels have been proposed in various forms expressing different concepts up to the most common use in ceramics. However, the result achieved by glazing terracotta elements remains a timeless product, that now is even more current than ever.
The new proposal of glazes enhances and embellishes the terracotta while maintaining its most honest form. We are referring to products that show the warmth of terracotta through shiny and opaque colors, pastel and metallic reflections, intense and subtle shades. All of this bringing a new breath on an universe as ancient as the raw material that composes it.
Glazed by S.Anselmo offers striking colors with a range that covers the entire rainbow without dwelling too much on nuances. Our 10 standard colors satisfy every need starting from the brightest shades up to the metallic and pearly ones. Difficult to choose!
S.Anselmo has always offered the service of color and texture development. Characteristics that are customary of our company and allow us to work on projects of high aesthetic and historical values such as important restoration jobs all over the world. Through our research and development process we can match any color and texture offering also solutions and effects such as water drops and craquelè.
We are inspired by the materials that surround, us in order to reproduce colors and textures that are quite far away from the world of terracotta but that once they are put together with terracotta, reveal a particular beauty because of their distance from the basic material. This is how contemporary metallic effects are born, same as the more vintage lead effects typical of our color developments.
