About Us

Chrysanthos was established in 2005 by Tony Crisafi. A determined chemist who had a dream of reviving the ceramic industry in Australia through producing affordable, amazing color!

From small beginnings in 1993 in our factory in Melbourne, Australia, under the brand Ceramic Solutions, we moved our manufacturing offshore in a whirlwind of an adventure, to be able to globally supply our rebranded products – Chrysanthos.

Today, Chrysanthos is still owned and managed by the Crisafi family in Australia. You will most likely be chatting to Tony’s daughter Adele on Instagram, dancing with his wife Claudia at expos, and viewing quirky artwork by his son Adrian.

Our team offshore are made up of dedicated professionals who have extensive experience in color development, manufacturing, export sales, quality control and warehouse management. Some employees have even been there since the birth of Chrysanthos in 2005!

We pride ourselves in our extensive, beautiful color range with a wide variety of effects products which are used by artists, students, hobbyists and small manufactures globally.

We strive to be equal to the best and dedicate a lot of our resources to R&D and quality to ensure you receive safe, reliable, affordable, no fuss color.

Equipment

Behind the name

The name Chrysanthos is inspirsed from our surname Crisafi.

Broken down, Chrysanthos is derived from the Greek words chrysos (χρυσος) meaning gold and anthos (ανθος) meaning flower. Together, we are known as Chrysanthos (Χρυσανθος), the golden flower.
