I'm delighted to say that after six years of research, my book on mid-century modern, retro and vintage Italian ceramics has been published and is now available!
The information in this book has never been published together before, and includes the rediscovery of a 'forgotten' factory. Names covered include Bitossi, Bagni, Bertoncello, Fantoni, Gambone, Fornasetti, and the factories on San Marino. This already hot market is set to rise - get in early!
