The Deruta Collection- The Italian hillside town of Deruta is known throughout the world for its spectacular pottery. For over six centuries, the craftspeople of Deruta have produced and exported ceramics. Our collection of vases, plates, platters, and more are the same classic designs that have made Deruta so vastly popular, with contemporary variations as seen in the Fresco collections.
Arte D'Italia Imports sources the finest handmade and hand-decorated Italian ceramics from Sicily, Umbria and Tuscany. Many of the designs date back countless generations or are derived from Renaissance artwork. Because all of our pottery is handmade, color and patterns can vary from piece to piece. This reveals the essence of the handmade process and illustrates the unique character of the piece. Our ceramics are food and dishwasher safe. We do not recommend putting items in the microwave or conventional oven.
