In 1934, Ottavio and Livio Masini began working as kilnmen by taking over the old Giuseppe Agresti Kiln in Impruneta. The company currently produces about 450 articles of various shapes and sizes that range from the classical to the most modern. The techniques and work cycles remain unchanged: in fact, larger vases and jars are entirely handmade using the old “coil” technique; hours and hours of work are required to complete a unique, highly ornamental object, carefully signed and dated. Special attention is paid to the firing process that gives the finished product roughness, compactness and the characteristic deep rustic red colour that is typical of the earth of Impruneta.
They are unique products, of exceptional beauty and highly resistant to atmospheric agents, especially frost and temperatures as low as -25°C. The craftsmen of the Masini Kiln use not only their skill and creativity, but also the dedication and passion of their forefathers. The company is a member of the Consortium for the Terracotta of Impruneta.
