Ceramano Header


Founded by Jakob Schwaderlapp (who also founded Jasba), Ceramano was established as an art ceramic factory producing more artistic and experimental forms alongside the more mass-produced Jasba items.

Ceramano items are generally of a high quality and varied nature. Many vase bases are hand marked and frequently include decor names. Designers included Hans Welling and Gerada Heuckerorth.

As studio ceramics became less popular in the 1970s Ceramano bought the Waku Feuerfest Keramik factory to allow them to produce more mass-produced items in an attempt to keep pace with the marketplace. This was unsuccessful and the factory closed in the late 1980s.
