Why Choose Us?
There is an Italian town called Montelupo that has been producing pottery with paintings on white glazes since the eleventh century. Along with Florence and Feanza, the town of Montelupo has been at the centre of this style of pottery from the very beginning.
The decisive development in Italian white tin-glazed pottery was the arrival from Spain of the Hispano-Moresque of Velencia.
The island of Mojotca was a staging post on this trade route between Spain and Italy and hence gave its name 'Maiolica' to the Italian version of Hispano-Moresque pottery.
The works which were produced combined the talents of potters, painters and sculptors to produce one finished piece.
