Established by Cav. Franco Perego in 1962, Tyche Porcellane d’arte has long been one of the most renowned art manufacturers in Italy, well recognised and appreciated for its top quality creations, whose manufacturing philosophy still requires products completely handcrafted by skilful artisans, model makers and decorators. Turning a very fine white powder made of kaolin, felspar and white quartz Tyche's roster of collaborators includes the likes of Alessandro Maggioni and Giorgio Galletti. This porcelain is so hard that it can be used to manufacture unique white objects whose exceptional thinness and translucency can create fascinating see-through effects.
