Francesco Raimondi (Vietri sul Mare, Italy, 1959) trained as a potter in the leading pottery factories of his town, where he learned from the local master craftsmen many of the secrets of this time-honoured technique. In 1992 he was hired by Raffaele Pinto to work at his centuries-old pottery factory: it was there that he met and was awed by the talent of Giovanni Carrano, possibly the greatest decorator that Vietri has ever produced. After Carrano’s death, Raimondi became the master craftsman of reference in the decoration of pottery. In 1999 he opened his own workshop in order to gain the freedom to express the full depth of his creative flair and extraordinary technical expertise. Since then Francesco Raimondi has created his own style, rich in subtle references and featuring an infinity of variables, creating new pieces that have captured the attention of architects, designers and collectors all over Europe and beyond.
