TAY symbolizes the ultimate artistry in ceramics. Giuseppe Tagliariol (TAY) was the artist and owner of the factory which produced magnificent works. In 1952 he opened his own studio in Monza, which he operated until his death in 1986. The business continues under the watchful eye of his son. Tay Junior suggests new models and new colors, but following rigorously his father's criteria of discipline and naturalistic interpretation combined with artistic inspiration. He is continuing the methods and ideas of his father, assimilated by him throughout his family life.
