The ancient Majolica technique is used to decorate the ceramics. This over glaze painting method demands free-flowing, confident brushwork, much like a fresco, and lends each piece with the distinct character of the artisan that has painted it. This means each and every piece is completely one-of-a-kind.

This is why you will find the signature of the artist and the mark of the Pottery on the base of each piece, though the trained eye can identify the artist from their brushwork alone.

Choose from five beautiful hand painted designs.
