Since 1987, Fos Ceramiche has crafted handmade porcelain art in Faenza, Italy. Faenza is world famous for its ceramic products: faenza-faience (majolica-ware). As early as the 13th century, ceramic art flourished in Faenza. Majolica was popular with the noble classes for decorating fine homes throughout Italy during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Pieces of majolica were exchanged between acquaintances, and special pieces were commissioned to mark engagements, important political or business alliances between families, and other special occasions.
