About Sargadelos

 

THE PRODUCTS

The raw material used to make the ceramics is kaolinite, a quartz-like solid clay, mined in the Sargadelos region, in A Marina, Lugo, Spain. The clay is treated at the highest temperature possible, above 1400 degrees C, resulting in an exceptional vitrified porcelain of very high quality. The clear glaze is applied to the already decorated bisque fired pot, the decoration is applied by airbrushing the colour over stencils, calcographic prints or in some special models, by hand. All products are microwave, oven and dishwater proof and safe.

THE COMPANY

Sargadelos is a Spanish company that produces porcelain dinnerware, figurines, sculptures and jewellery. The pieces are all individually made and hand crafted from the finest Galician porcelain. Sargadelos has an excellent reputation for producing ceramic pieces of quality and individuality. The company is also steeped in history, with its ceramic plant opening in 1804; in 1947 Sargadelos became a workers cooperative. Today it is a limited company whose main shareholder is Ceramicas do Castro S.S. which has the participation of the families who have developed the company since 1947. Sargadelos is committed to promoting Galician culture and economic growth in conjunction with social development.

You will note that Sargadelos does sell direct to the public however their prices will vary due to fluctuations in the Australian dollar conversion to Euros and customers need to pay high shipping costs as well as import tax and duty. At Riiko Ceramics we try and keep our prices stable, we pay all import tax and shipping for products and we attempt to deliver to Australians at minimal cost.
