The individual appeal of handmade bathroomware


There can be few things more appealing than an elegant vanity basin made in Italy – unless there's the option to have it handmade as well.

When you buy a Ceramica Cielo basin hand-made by a ceramic master, you're effectively buying a piece of art, says Maurizio Pesciatini lead designer for Casa Italiana, the company that imports the basins into New Zealand.

"All Ceramica Cielo basins are handmade – nothing is created by machines or processed using traditional mass production methods," Pesciatini says. "This means each and every basin has its individual quirks and that there are few other pieces like yours in the world.

"In addition, Ceramica Cielo works with some of the most talented ceramic designers. So, as well as having a unique basin, its refined design means you won't feel the need to update it a few years down the track."

And in terms of aesthetic choice, Ceramica Cielo basins are equally appealing. There is a new marble-look option and Ceramica Cielo now offers its products in 15 different colours.


Winner of many awards over the past 10 years, Ceramica Cielo shows new ways to work with ceramics, reflected in the variety of colours on offer and sculptural shapes achieved. Casa Italiana is the sole distributor in New Zealand.
