Ceramiche De Simone was founded at the beginning of the 1960’s.
The company is at the forefront of the world of Sicilian and international ceramic art thanks to its unique and original style, which derives from the masters Picasso, Matisse, Leger and Klee, as well as everyday situations taken from folklore and Sicilian traditions. The authenticity of the De Simone handmade product is guaranteed due to the company’s continuity, productive know-how and artistic staff (potters, designers, decorators, etc). The workers were chosen from amongst the best art students, whose experience and enthusiasm ensure and protect the precious heritage of the traditional Giovanni De Simone ceramics school.
Today, the company, which is directed by a passionate group of entrepreneurs, aims to revitalise the historic brand name, whilst embracing and sharing the values and the working methods of the artists that belong to the Giovanni De Simone school: creativity, quality, beauty, tradition, heritage, poetic and narrative culture of Sicily, and team spirit. The new management’s objectives are to restore the company to its former glory: to consolidate production, refine artistic expression and improve the quality of the materials and the colours, strictly without lead and in accordance with the European law, to make the goods dish washer proof, and also produce an oven – proof collection made of clay. In short, their aim is to re-launch the brand “Ceramiche De Simone” into the market.
