Descriptions & details
Sicily is an island of drama, beauty and light. Here Greek, Roman, Arab, Norman and Spanish peoples (to mention but a few!) have come and gone, blending their arts to create a unique, treasured heritage.
Handmade & hand-painted in Messina, Italy
Ghenos is a small artisan studio in Messina, whose fame has spread far and wide. Their hand painted tiles, tableware, and home decor accents decorate villas in Capri, mansions in Paris and swimming pools in New Orleans. Inspired by traditional Sicilian pottery, with a penchant for Baroque, Ghenos designs are elaborate, rich in details and colors. Their knowledge of local art and crafts is reflected in the details of their work which is unique and very special.
Located in the North-East of Sicily, a stone's throw from the continent, Messina has been a center of pottery making for millennia. In the past few centuries, most artisans have moved to neighboring towns and villages, such as Taormina and Santo Stefano di Camastra, which certainly attract more tourists than Messina. However, the beauty and quality of the ceramics we found in Messina are extraordinary, just like the incredible talents of their makers.
