Daniel, known as Danillo Curetti, a young contemporary artist of Swiss origin, brought an innovative spirit to the Faïenceries in 1983. He worked there for nearly six years before leaving Longwy in November 1989 to set up an earthenware factory in Switzerland. From his passage emanates an Art Deco wind, Curetti masters drawing and material. He worked in large flat tones and often used the large colonial balls, created in 1931, or large bowls (shape 1643). His very fertile inspiration attracts a large public, which sometimes confuses his pieces with creations from the 1920s and 1930s. Among his famous designs are Paul et Virginie, specially created for Ted Lapidus, the signs of the Zodiac, panthers, tigers, Normandie, the Eiffel Tower, Iceberg, Barbara, Femme au collier... He also imagines shapes such as the Boule Marylin, which combines enamels and passementerie and brings Art Deco wall lights up to date. All these pieces are in limited editions and bear his signature. Danillo Curetti returned to Longwy in 1991, called back by the Kostka family, the new owners of the Faïencerie. He died prematurely in 1993 at the dawn of his fortieth birthday. For 10 years, he breathed a wind of modernism from Art Deco into the age-old factory. His designs were a nice alternative to the traditional Japanese designs (see Dominique Dreyfus' "passion and collections" notebooks). Curetti has kept a public sensitive to his art, his creations are still very appreciated and sought after and his creations on colonial balls are often sold out. Les Faïenceries continue to offer Curetti's works on new supports such as Flo balls, Midi balls... or in the new collection 'Curetti Recoloré' in black, white, gold and platinum.
