Twenty years ago, Eugenio Ricciarelli set up his own atelier after building his reputation from scratch. Eugenio’s talent was discovered and nurtured by some of the most skilled ceramic artists in Deruta, such as Folichetti, Buccini Ranieri. He spent years in Franco Mari’s factory, where he developed and refined his personal interpretation of the renaissance geometric decorations. He pays the greatest attention to colour shades, which turn any piece into a masterpiece. His full, glossy and velvet like blue background is very distinctive, like his colourful patterns, which are widely imitated, but never equaled. This is why Eugenio is one of the best, if not the best artist in Deruta .
