This exquisite Italian ceramic wall plate features a school of anchovies in Chaos.

These art pieces are the treasures of our most artistic pair of ceramicists. The Vignoli sisters, Saura and Ivana, use a special technique involving unique glazes and firing styles, to create a spectacular copper sheen, which makes every piece as unique as a fingerprint. These techniques paired with their geometric patterns offer a modern Italian aesthetic.

A classical inspiration

 Faenza, home of the art of ceramics during the late Middle Ages. The ceramists of that time definitely tried to imitate the porcelain and painted ceramics that were coming from Asia and Middle East. During the 16th century, Faenza stood out from the other ceramic production centers, and defined its own style, that sums up the culture of the era, a mix of Byzantine, Roman, Eastern and Islamic elements. From this tradition results our decorative research, that we like to define "Mediterranean".

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.
