TESTA D'ARTE 

This d'arte ceramic sculpture with peppers is hand crafted by Ivana Dolfi in Montelupo, Italy. These modern art pieces are  hand made scuptures and can be used as a planter, vase or simply stunning piece of art. 

Each Testa d'Arte (Head of Art) is a unique, one of a kind piece.    

The modern art piece is a statue and also a planter. The Italian ceramiche detail is all hand made and painted, a unique, one of a kind piece.    

The Dolfi family, a famous family in Tuscany, has been producing Italian Majolica for many generations. Ivana Dolfi, one of the most innovative and talented artisans in Florence produces unique ceramics. Ivana’s father was considered the best artisan in Tuscany in his time. 

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.
