Giuseppe Bucco and Flavio Cavalli obtained their artistic diploma at the Ceramic Art Institute of Nove, Vicenza, Italy, in 1975, and founded Lineasette in Marostica, Vicenza, in 1977, setting up their own research and experimental laboratory. From the very beginning, they both focused on researching new stylistic forms and new productive techniques that could, on one hand, enrich and go together with the ceramic tradition of their territory, and, on the other hand, be the distinctive trait of their artistic and handicraft identity. They chose porcelain stoneware, a ceramic with extraordinary physical properties of hardness and impermeability, as their favourite material for the production of vases, trays, bottles, human and animal figures. All ornamental pieces produced are studied, designed and made with the contribution of both artists. Their collections have been greeted by an ever-growing crescendo of praise throughout the years, and their artistic and handicraft skills are gaining international popularity. In 1987, the laboratory was moved in the spacious building in steel and cement designed by the architect Aldo Loss, former pupil of Carlo Scarpa, now hosting the showroom and offices of Lineasette. Eventually, the production was moved again in a new laboratory in the handicraft district of the nearby town of Nove, artistic core of the ceramic production in Veneto.
Lineasette is happy to welcome you in the ample showroom in the centre of Marostica, where you will have the chance to approach the passion and the enthusiasm driving us since 1977 to create, with a rigorous handicraft production technique, porcelain stoneware handmade objects rendered perfectly waterproof by an extremely high temperature firing (1200° C).
The engobe coating is made of mixed clay and metal oxides, colorants and fluxes mixed with siliceous sands, and confers to our artifacts’ surface a peculiar uneven, dotted effect.
All Lineasette creations are the result of a deep and passionate research of ceramic techniques and contemporary designs. Every artifact is a small sculpture with pure and essential traits, as if shaped by natural elements. According to Flavio Cavalli and Giuseppe Bucco, every creation needs to meet the following requirements: harmony, balance, joy, freedom of movement. The shape of each object, rough or smooth, matt or glossy, has to be free and harmonious; it has to take shape and become blurred, it has to amaze.
The making of every single artifact is personally supervised by the designers, who follow every step of its creation, from its design to the end product, to make sure that, in the process, the quality of each handicraft piece is guaranteed.
