This design was inspired by the Japanese Imari style in the 17th century, when Oriental Art became very popular in Europe. The Carnation design was interpreted in Lodi, and later became the banner pattern of Faenza, the maiolica town that then popularized the pattern. Bruno Brolli, from Rimini, is our artist of choice for this classic pattern. Each one of these pieces is signed by the artist.

Inspired by the 17th century Japanese Imari style, the Blue Carnation design was first developed showing a stylized representation of the Japanese garden. Originating in Lodi near Milan, Blue Carnation is now produced in Rimini by the Adriatic Sea. The original owner Bruno Brolli has turned over the workshop to his apprentice Roberto del Vecchio.

Italian ceramics are heirloom quality products, and can last lifetime with proper care. We have some suggestions that will preserve your majolica for years to come.


Majolica is dishwasher safe, but many people choose to hand wash their pieces as a precaution. Because majolica is a porous material, some pieces are not meant to hold liquid for a long period of time. Check for warning labels before ordering a product, as the pieces that are most notorious for "sweating" are appropriately labeled.


Majolica is sensitive to extreme temperatures, specifically boiling or freezing liquids. Pouring water with a rolling boil directly into a teapot, for example, may lead to breakage. To avoid this, temper the object. The industry standard is 620 degrees Celsius (1,148 degrees Fahrenheit). Quench the glass to cool it.


Crazing is common in well used majolica. The tiny cracks in the glaze do not affect the functionality of your majolica.


Majolica hand-crafted products should not be microwaved, as it may crack and/or break the ceramics.
