Ulisse Cantagalli was a superb artist and an even better businessman.
Not much of him is known before 1878, when he took over the family factory in Florence and
started to produce highly decorative Italian ceramics in the Renaissance style.
At the time the taste for this kind of pottery was a very hot trend in the English speaking countries.
The Lustre Tequnique
Ulisse was determined to recreate the subtle finish seen on the lustred pottery
from Valencia, Gubbia, and Deruta, a technique said to have been perfected by Maestro Georgio Andreoli of Gubbio
at the beginning of the 16th century. His ability to master the ruby and golden luster techniques
of Mastro Giorgio Andreoli brought the factory to fame, particularly in Britain.
