Ceramic Jewels of Vietri
Our Ceramic Jewels of Vietri, naturally dedicated to horses and their elegance as are all our collections, are born exclusively in Vietri sul Mare, one of the most beautiful and important towns on the Amalfi Coast, famous all over the world for its ceramics.
The Ceramics of Vietri
The Ceramics of Vietri. The History
Before introducing you to our Ceramic Jewels of Vietri, let’s get to know the Vietri ceramics to understand the great and important history of this millennial tradition because all the colors of the Amalfi Coast seem to meet in Vietri, in the glazes and decorations of the ceramics produced since 1600.
Creative synthesis, immediacy of image, colors that come together by contrast and not by nuanced overlap are the characters that distinguish the Ceramics of Vietri.
The first news of a flourishing activity linked to the production of ceramics dates back to the XIV Century but certain documentation of the Ceramics of Vietri industry was only found in the sixteenth century with the production of dishes and containers for storing water, bowls and small jars for storing spices and drugs.
The qualitative leap was in the seventeenth century when the Ceramics of Vietri were enriched with artistic forms and decorations that led to the creation of objects related to religious worship such as domestic holy water fonts, majolica tiles with a religious subject, panels and votive shrines still scattered in the alleys in the area.
The Ceramics of Vietri and Art
Starting from the 1920s of the 20th century, the great quality of the Ceramics of Vietri attracted world-renowned artists and craftsmen (Irene Kowaliska, Riccardo Dolker, Giovannino Carrano and others) who made Vietri one of the recognized world capitals of the production of art.
Today the Ceramics of Vietri workshops are a show within a show.
The narrow streets of Vietri are full of small shops and craft shops where the art of ceramics reaches truly unique levels, both in terms of shapes and colors.
Ceramic Jewels of Vietri
In this extraordinary and unique world of art, craftsmanship and colors our jewels are born that our Italian ceramic artist, daughter of art and Graduated Master of Art, creates in her characteristic laboratory following the criteria of the Ancient Art of Ceramics of Vietri.
Ceramic Jewels of Vietri. How they are born
Our jewels are born from an idea, from a draw that our artist transforms into jewelry.
All his work is done by hand and begins with a small amount of selected white clay which is molded to the desired shape.
After a long process of work and craftsmanship, each jewel is hand painted with extreme care and rare craftsmanship.
When the jewel is finished it is baked in a specific ceramic oven that reaches very high temperatures, around 1000 ° and, once cooled, the jewel is ready for our client who will wear it.

Now our jewels, a set consisting of a necklace and two earrings dedicated to horses, are finished. Here they are next to the original drawing.
Since the processing of each jewel is handmade, the shape and decoration vary, albeit slightly, from the published images, making each of our jewels unique in the world.
A real small, large and precious work of art to wear that only you will have.
