The Tuscan Collection
We offer a distinctive range of Italian ceramic tableware called 'Shades of Tuscany', made in the traditional shape and style of the region. The attractive set of 6 plates, bowls and cups, reflect all the colours of Tuscany, a region that is extremely popular among the British. Each piece can be used individually or as part of a larger set.
The Sicilian Collection
Sicily is a region of Italy that inspires the imagination and these traditional, hand-painted plates, perfectly represent this sun-soaked Mediterranean island with their vivid array of brightly coloured designs.
These hand made and hand-painted ceramic candlesticks are a feature of Sicilian culture.
No one who has ever visited Sicily will have missed the fabulous, unique ceramic tiles that are such a feature of the area. This collection of beautiful, hand painted tiles will make any house unique.
The Rustic Collection
Our 'Rustic' collection of hand-painted ceramics from the south of Italy, are available in three distinctive and evocative styles: 'Fruit Harvest' (with blue of green edging), 'Rural Scene' and 'Flower Garland'.
All of the items we display can be supplied in any of the designs by special order.
The Mediterranean lifestyle is centred around long, leisurely, family lunches in the sunshine. Our Italian ceramic tableware, hand-painted in traditional styles, perfectly recreates that lifestyle in any setting.
Anyone with an Italian heritage will have fond memories of 'Nonna', cooking over a wood stove. Our range of hand-painted ceramic kitchenware, including plates and bowls, hand-made spoon rests and decorated storage jars, bring back fond memories of that bygone age.
Our authentic, hand-painted Italian ceramics will enhance the decor of any home or provide the perfect gift of family or friends.
The word 'Ceramics' comes from the Greek 'Keramos'. It was first produced in Italy by the Etruscans, using a technique called 'Bucchero'. Later, Tuscany and Umbria became famous for the 'Maiolica' ceramics they produced and Sicily, for the 'Baroque' style. Like everything in Italy, each region has its own unique contribution that the resident consider to be best of all!
