Artemest

I read an article about the new website Artemest in Elle Decor and couldn’t wait until I had time to sit down and find out more about it.  Believe me, I wasn’t disappointed!

The designer behind Ippolita, the fine jewelry line, set about to ensure that Italian artisans working using centuries old techniques would be able to remain in business.

One artist, Constanza Paravicini, still paints her designs on ceramics by hand – directly onto the raw bisque.  She was never one to advertise her work, rather clients visited her in her home studio to place orders.  She is now one of almost 100 craftsmen partnering with Artemest.

her ceramics are painted using only powdered pigment and water…

Paravicini refers to the results of her work as “pulsating vibrato”…

A year or so ago, Ms. Rostagno took six months to peruse Italy in search of artisans to partner with Artemest.  Many were found only by word of mouth as they have no storefronts.

Maria Giannini’s marbled paper and leather albums are a favorite…

Old-world crafts are well represented on the site but there is also plenty of modern art represented.  Take the glass art pieces created by Simone Crestani…
