Each works to presents to you the best of their collections, whether traditional or modern. Together, they introduce the most selective assortment of hand made artistic ceramics on the Italian market. Each piece is uniquely crafted by quoted artists and it is certified so.
Since 1282. Traditions have been passed from father to son for eight centuries. Our ceramists continue to work the way their fathers and forefathers worked. Deruta's ceramics masterworks, some centuries' old, are showpieces in the most famous museums around the globe and sell at high prices in top auction houses. In fact, some of its ware acquires value in a matter of decades and becomes an investment that, aside from the pleasure it gives you to own, increases in value with time. Products on this site are fully hand-made and guaranteed Deruta from birth to final cooking. If you visit Deruta, manufacturers in the network will be enthusiastic to show you their shops and manufacturing facilities anytime.
