SILVANA EDITORIALE
MILAN
ENGLISH / ITALIAN


The father of Italian architecture Gio Ponti first abandoned his architecture degree upon graduation and decided to take up a position as art director at the Milanese ceramics manufacturer, Richard-Ginori. He worked at the company for a good few years designing ceramic, porcelain and majolica vases, bowls, figurines and trays that infused his style. The works were embellished with shapely women, classical architecture and animals in flight. This book covers the time and work of Ponti as a ceramist.
