The art of ceramics in the Amalfi Coast has ancient origins and was born in the town of Vietri sul Mare, in the province of Salerno. The ceramics are real handcrafted works, the fruit of a long moon made by hand that makes them unique and inimitable. The creation process is long and complex, at first the clay is worked on a lathe and the structure of the object to be made is formed, then it is baked in the oven and then an enamelling is done. Once this is done, the Vietrese ceramic objects are immersed in white enamel, left to dry and then decorated by hand. The recurring colors are often the blue of the sea, the green of nature and the yellow of lemons, they are brilliant and luminous thanks to a second firing that fixes the drawn works.
In addition to being a 100% Made in Italy product, ceramics are unique pieces that can be customized on request and are a perfect souvenir of an unforgettable holiday on the Amalfi Coast.
