Piero Fornasetti was born in 1913 and from the time he was twenty-two until his death in 1988, he lived and worked in Milan applying his designs (gold trim and decals) to a range of decorative objects.

In applying gold trim and decals to an industrial object, Fornasetti was challenging the notion that form follows function but, instead, form or, in this case, a decoration can be added to an object to create "varying degrees of irony, wit and tension" making people rethink the way they looked at the world
In the 1980s, his work enjoyed popularity among both consumers and designers.

"To make the decal, a screen of the desired image is created. This is a process much like making a photograph from a negative (Healey, p. 27). The screen is then used to print the image on a special piece of paper, which, once dry is applied to the ceramic object and fired.
Born in 1913, Fornasetti first garnered popular success through his collaborations with Gio Ponti, who provided the decorator with furnishings on which to apply his neo-classically minded aesthetic, resulting in pieces that exhibited illusionistic spaces that heavily referenced Italian visual culture. Later in his career, Fornasetti’s artistic style became more Surrealist and fanciful, with motifs often featuring animals and the faces of the sun and moon. Perhaps his most popular and recognized motif was that of opera singer Lina Cavalieri, which he used as a recurring motif in a series of 350 plates that feature her likeness in whimsical, increasingly Surrealist compositions"
