For brothers Tony & Michael Donatelli of OGGI Stone Craft, supplying beautiful garden art isn’t just a business, it’s a passion.
There is a strong artistic influence in the family and Michael’s history working with pottery and stone dates all the way back to 1979. The desire in forming OGGI Stone Craft fifteen years ago was to create a unique range of products that were both visually appealing and of uncompromised quality.
The pair are masters at crafting sandstone, granite and other materials into objects d’art, however credit a large portion of their success on a ‘secret family reciper’ they use to form many of pieces in their vast range, ensuring they are durable as well as timeless.
As artisans, with a passion for creation the OGGI range is extensive, and continuously growing. The current range includes everythingfrom modern and contemporary pieces to water fountains, statues, and urns with a distinct European influence – it is these pieces that Michael says ‘add class’ to the average garden.
A large portion of the range is adaptable, allowing pieces to be combined to create unique pieces unto themselves, ornaments can be added to water fountains, various pedestals can be applied to urns and statues.
The couple are also more than willing to provide design advice and help you select the perfect pieces for your individual space. This also extends to custom making items to suit your specific needs.
With other ‘discount’ suppliers having entered the market, the longevity of the business is a testament to the quality and service standards that the pair claim as their ‘customer commitment’.
“Whilst we ensure our products are affordably priced to remain competitive in the market, only the finest components and raw materials go into creating an OGGI peice”
“Whilst we ensure our products are affordably priced to remain competitive in the market, only the finest components and raw materials go into creating an OGGI peice” says Michael, “This way our customers know that they are investing in a piece of garden art today, that their children will fight over tomorrow.”
