Artemest and Richard Ginori Introduce 'The Road to Heaven is Paved With Excess', the Enchanting Porcelain Collection That Reinterprets Iconic Motifs by the Florentine Maison and Inspired by Poet William Blake

Artemest, the first e-commerce for luxury crafts made in Italy, presents a new collection of plates designed in partnership with Richard Ginori and Artemest Creative Director and renowned jewelry designer Ippolita Rostagno.

Loosely inspired by the poet William Blake, the charming collection of porcelain plates trimmed with golden details is called “The Road to Heaven is Paved with Excess”, and it brings to life an exclusive series of unique decorative items. The tradition and excellence of Richard Ginori’s porcelains are combined with the glamorous and luxuriant vision of artist and designer Ippolita Rostagno, reinterpreting the most famous and classic Richard Ginori’s motifs with new exuberant concepts. Each plate has a different word, telling a playful and whimsical story: the simple act of having lunch becomes a sophisticated game.

“The collection ‘The Road to Heaven is Paved with Excess’ is inspired by the poet William Blake. The concept is that you never know what is enough until you know what is more than enough. I love this idea because it wraps up exuberance and restraint into a constant dynamic, which is perfect for this moment in which maximalism reigns”, commented Ippolita Rostagno.

The collection, purchasable exclusively online on, consists of different colors and styles, each of them composed of four plates.
