Our Vietri Ceramic Jewels, unique because they are handmade, with love.
Vietri Ceramic Jewels
Our Vietri Ceramic Jewels, 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 municipalities of the Amalfi Coast, famous all over the world for its ceramics.
We know Vietri
Already inhabited at the time of the ancient city of Marcina (presumably founded by the Tyrrhenians), in addition to offering a splendid sea, Vietri is surrounded by magnificent Mediterranean vegetation and is certified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Arriving from the sea, your gaze is immediately drawn to the spectacular majolica of the dome of the seventeenth-century church of S. Giovanni Battista, which immediately makes you understand the ancient art that you breathe in the city and that is found in the unique craftsmanship of the Vietri ceramics.
The Ceramics of Vietri
We recommend a visit to the Ceramics Museum to understand the great and important history of the millennial tradition of the ceramics of Vietri 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 overlapping are the characters that distinguish the Ceramiche di 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 Vietri Ceramics industry was only found in the 16th 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 Ceramiche di 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.
Vietri Ceramics and Art
Starting from the 1920s, the great quality of the Ceramiche di Vietri attracted world-renowned artists and craftsmen (Irene Kowaliska, Riccardo Dolker, Giovannino Carrano) who made Vietri one of the recognized world capitals of the production of art ceramics.
Today the Vietri ceramic 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.
Our Vietri Ceramic Jewels dedicated to horses and their elegance
In this magnificent world of art, craftsmanship and colors, our Vietri Ceramic Jewels dedicated to horses and their elegance are born from our idea, which our Italian ceramic artist, daughter of art and graduated Master of Art , transforms into jewels in its characteristic laboratory following the criteria of the ancient art of Vietri ceramics.
Our Vietri Ceramic Jewels. How they are born
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.
Our Vietri Ceramic Jewels. Here they are finished
Now our Vietri Ceramic Jewelry, a set consisting of a necklace and two earrings dedicated to horses, are finished.
Here they are next to the original drawing in the photograph above.
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.
