Materials of the Italian culture

The careful choice of materials is a distinctive feature of Laudarte. The materials used – from marble to bronze, from mosaic to porcelain – are those of art history, from the classical period to the present day, and give the creations of Laudarte a peculiar richness.

Marble

Since the time of Ancient Rome, Italy has been a point of reference for this material, thanks to the many precious varieties available and sophisticated production skills. For most of its creations, Laudarte uses marble with bronze casting.

Capodimonte porcelain

The fame of this refined porcelain from Naples has continued undisputed since the 18th century. Its great strength enables the creation of layers as thin as rose petals; Laudarte has conceived and developed a number of unique shapes and uses for this material.

Bronze Casting

Laudarte creates its objects utilising various ancient techniques, including “cire perdue” and earth casting. In order to give the pieces an 18th century elegance, every component is individually treated to highlight the opaque or polished effect of shapes.

Mosaic

Laudarte draws on the deep Italian history in this art, creating works inspired by the Etruscan and Roman tradition and that possess the eclecticism of timeless design. The result is a range of extremely refined shapes in which jade, gold, shells and semi-precious stones come together to create superb chromatic effects.

Scagliola

The first examples of this art appeared on the walls of the Circus Maximus, back in Roman times. Tuscany was its cradle thanks to the Vallombrosan monk Enrico Hugford, and scagliola decoration became popular in Italian Baroque buildings in the 17th century. Laudarte uses scagliola to ennoble materials such as plaster and selenite plates, giving life to inlaid work with incredible sheen, transparency and pearly whiteness.

Crystal

This particularly transparent and brilliant glass, obtained with the use of lead silicate, was perfected in Bohemia towards the end of the 17th century. Thanks to its suitability for precision grinding, it allows Laudarte to create clean and personalised shapes and geometries.

Murano glass

In the century-old Venetian glass tradition, soda is added to glass to allow melting at lower temperatures. The glass remains ductile for long, allowing expert artisans to create special and elaborate forms.

Coloured glass paste

“Pate de verre” is one of the oldest known forms of glass working. These technique first flowered around 1500 - 1000 BC in Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt and enjoyed a renaissance in the 19th and 20th centuries in Europe, especially in France. Laudarte uses glass paste for its distinctive luster deriving from having the colours as part of the glass matrix as opposed to being painted over.
