Enea Mazzotti, after a law degree at the University of Bologna, attended the Higher Technical Institute for ceramics in Faenza. After brief experiences with artists including Bertozzi & Casoni, he started working at FOS CERAMICHE where, in parallel with the production of design objects, he dedicated himself to the creation of artistic works.
FOS CERAMICHE is a manufacture of Art and Design that creates handmade porcelain objects in Faenza, the very centre of ceramic production since the 13th century. The idea and the genesis of our objects encapsulate creative thinking, innovative challenge and quality control, in order to tell centuries-old techniques using a contemporary language.
