My family has recently celebrated the century of activity in the
ceramic field and, with the inclusion in the firm of my sons Mattia
and Cosimo, it comes natural remembering how I saw the factory when
I was a child.
It seemed to be in the forge of a wizard; clay was modeled with a giant
lathe, the glazes, changed and assumed wonderful iridescence with the
fire, the white-hot stove emanated a very strong heat and the wood
which was thrown inside caused flames and many luminescent little stars
that climbed towards the sky...
Even today the technical process is always the same, highly handicraft,
but surely enhanced from the marriage with the most advanced technology
that, through the possible Internet connections with the most secluded
corners of the world, can acquaint people of the research, the inventive,
and the artistic skill of the various generations of the Chini family.
