All our majolica are hand-made and hand-painted by Deruta artisans.

The Process Involves 5 Steps:

The Potter: Starts with a plain lump of refined clay. Masterfully, the clay is transformed and molded for the kiln.

The First Firing: The clay is fired at 950 degrees and is referred to as "biscotto" (Bisque).

The Glazing: The bisque is dipped into "smalto", a fast drying chalky liquid glaze. This step, a secret composition for each factory, will then be painted and helps determine the color tones of the fired piece.

The Painting: The artist hand and experience with color now transform the piece as has been for centuries.

The Second Firing: The final step w the piece is fired at 920 degrees for a 12 hour period.

We make every effort to describe all items as accurately as possible. As all items are hand painted and tfore, irregularities do occur. You may see a tiny pin hole in the glaze which is common. No two pieces are identical.

Each piece is dishwasher safe but not recommended for microwave use.
