Since we introduced them to the North American market back in 2010, these exceptionally exquisite Sicilian Head Vases have gained widespread recognition and popularity, largely attributed to their prominent feature in the White Lotus 2022 HBO TV series. Our Caltagirone collection showcases the classic Sicilian Heads Vases, also referred to as "Teste di Moro" (Moorish Heads), that are ornamental planters adorned with regional fruits like lemons and pomegranates, as well as Baroque bass relief designs. While traditionally placed on gateposts or in outdoor gardens, these Moorish Heads are now commonly utilized as interior décor, serving as distinctive "conversation pieces."

FEATURING THE LARGEST ASSORTMENT OF AUTHENTIC TUSCAN AND DERUTA CERAMICS IN THE USA! Here we feature an array of traditional Tuscan products made in the small town of Montelupo Fiorentino, which is situated in the heart of Tuscany. This ancient Tuscan process produces an authentic 'Old World' look, and adds significant body to the colors. You can actually feel the consistent (almost raised) body of the painting when gently passing your hand over decorated parts. Due to the complexity of both preparation and painting, this technique is now used by very few artisans, which makes these items very hard to find.
Our new 'Sicilia Collection' feature a fresh and colorful design that celebrates the Italian region of Sicily featuring its own and most popular fruit, the Lemon! Our exclusive and hard to find rectangular jardinieres are made of double-tick strong clay, double fired and of course, fully hand painted by master artistes from the renowned Sicilian town of Caltagirone. The jardinieres are pre-drilled for drainage and quite heavy to securely stay in place.
Suitable for indoor and outdoor use in any season.
The painstaking process of painting the Bisque is the essence of Majolica. The Painter, "Il Pittore", may paint a decoration freehand, or use a type of pounce, "Spolvero", to stencil sketches of the design taken from historical drawings. The painter must fully understand the complexities of coloration, as the raw glazes used for painting all have a very similar Gray/Black tone and the painting must be a error-free process as mistakes cannot be easily corrected. The true and brilliant colors will be produced only after the finished product emerges from the final kiln firing.
