Giuseppe Armani
From the moment young Giuseppe could pick up a pencil, he drew. He drew everything he saw. He drew everyone he knew. He drew all day long. And it wasn’t long before his parents and teachers saw he had The Gift.

Young Armani was already enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence when his father unexpectedly died. Because the family now needed Giuseppe, art school was forgotten. Art, however, was not.

When Giuseppe’s Parish Priest organized an exhibition for the young artists he knew, he entered Giuseppe’s sculpture of a classically inspired male torso. The work was greatly admired for its extraordinary anatomical precision. When the torso was taken to the Art Gallery in Pisa --Giuseppe Armani’s talent was rewarded with the offer of a permanent job in the Art Gallery adjacent to Pisa’s famous Leaning Tower.

It was there in Pisa that Armani’s dream of studying art was finally realized. While in Pisa he often traveled to Siena and Florence where he immersed himself in the great masterpieces of the Renaissance. His distinction was and remains in his ability to infuse life, character, and soul into his sculpture. Giuseppe experimented in wood, clay, alabaster and marble. His reputation grew with each breathtaking creation. Soon art enthusiasts from around the world started to flock to the Art Gallery just to see Giuseppe Armani’s latest creations.

In 1975, Florence Sculture d’Arte, recognizing Armani’s genius, offered him the opportunity to work exclusively for them. He was encouraged to give free rein to his artistic muse. For more than 25 years Armani has created masterpieces ranging from the traditional Capodimonte style to the more daring, contemporary and whimsical sculptures. Always and remarkably, Giuseppe Armani’s figurines have the spark of life, and his breathtaking realism continues to amaze his many admirers the world over.

Giuseppe Armani describes his credo this way: “Although I consider myself a direct descendant of the Renaissance heritage, I believe that an artist has to follow his own evolution and not be solely a remnant of the past, as glorious as the past may have been. I am continually compelled to discover new and better means of expression.”

Thomas Blackshear
A world class illustrator, Thomas Blackshear and Willitts Designs introduced Ebony Visions in April 1995 with the release of the first six designs. Blackshear's work is a blend of both Art Nouveau and African culture. Blackshear calls his style Afro-Nouveau. In his own words, "Ebony Visions reflects not only my own visions as a black man, but also unique visions of black people. The designs reflect visions we all share, regardless of the color of our skin."
