Whimsy Wednesday: Fornasettis witty figurative ceramic pieces

Fornasetti’s whimsical and iconic line of homeware is so intriguing to browse. The collection includes decorative plates, trays, candles, pillows and stools to name a few. Fornasetti passed away in the 1980s, leaving son, Barnaba, to run his company. Barnaba continues to carry-on his father’s vision and surrealism in his creations. From vintage pieces to new collections, there are hundreds of irresistible products.

I am particularly fascinated by Fornasetti’s reproduction of operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri’s face. The genius design and quirkiness of these pieces gets me every time. Below, I am sharing five of the many decorative plates I love. Definitely a collectible!

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Which one is your favorite?
