In The News

Ceramica has been a direct importer of maiolica from the Tuscan and Umbrian regions of Italy for over 30 years.

This type of low-fired pottery was popularized during the Renaissance. The artisans we have chosen to produce our hand-painted pieces follow the traditions of their ancestors.

We work with small shops dedicated to the beauty of this craft in order to bring you the life-style and colors of Italy at exceptional value.

Be assured that slight irregularities are common in hand-painted pieces and are considered a sign of the artisan's hand.
