Porcelain figurine of Pinocchio with a long nose. He is wearing a white jacket with red dots, black trousers and a red pointy hat with white edges. He is sitting on a yellow stair, his crossed hands leaning on his knees, touching one another. He is looking into the distance, lost in his thoughts. He might be thinking of how much fun it would be to go watch the puppet show instead of going to school. Next to him on the tiled floor is laying the book that tells his story: “Once upon a time, there was a piece of wood…”

Every product created by Sibania is unique both concerning the realization process of every single piece and the production technology, which boasts its being inimitable by others. Each item is hand made and hand painted in our workshop, set in Vicenza (Italy). All clothes are made of thin, porcelain layers on which different kinds of textures are impressed. These layers are cutted according to the characteristics of every single template. They are successively carefully applied on the figurine body. Hairstyles are also handcrafted depending on each figurine’s unique features. Faces, clothes and accessories are painted on the biscuit with non-toxic colors. The piece is eventually baked one last time (“third firing”). Any additional details such as violin strings or the Vespa kickstands are then applied on the finished piece.
