Giuseppe Mazzotti


Giuseppe Mazzotti (1883–1953) was an Italian ceramic artist and founder of Manifattura Ceramica Giuseppe Mazzotti in Albisola, known for pioneering modern ceramic techniques and aesthetics that influenced European design. Mazzotti's collaboration with prominent artists like Futurist Filippo Tommaso Marinetti led to iconic pieces such as the "Ceramiche Futuriste," which are celebrated for their innovative shapes and dynamic decorations, embodying the avant-garde spirit of the early 20th century. His contributions to ceramic art, particularly through embracing and promoting the Futurist movement, marked a significant departure from traditional forms, influencing the evolution of modern design in Italy and beyond.
