Our Umbria Collection is from a small, hill town near Assisi. This small, family factory has been making ceramics for generations, and has their own process for finishing each piece. After each piece is completed, it is dipped in a clear coat and then high fired for a third time, adding a beautiful shine to the brightly colored ceramics. Traditionally, Italian ceramics are only high fired twice; a third firing adds extra protection and strength.
The Umbria collection offers a number of exciting shapes and useful pieces, from platters and pitchers to vases and cachepots. Alcantara, Frutta Mista, Melograno and Frutta are designed to go together for the table or decoration. All pieces are food and dishwasher safe.
