Bionda-Bruna's Italian Ceramic Collections reflect the passion of past and present Italian culture. The glazed hand-painted ceramics is a functional piece of art. Made from the finest Umbrian red clay, each piece is one-of-a-kind, due to the creative handmade moulds in soft asymmetrical shapes made exclusively for Bionda-Bruna. After the clay has been fired into bisque, all decoration and layering of colors are carefully painted by hand. The bisque is then twice fired in the traditional maiolica technique producing beautifully glazed ceramics. Dishwasher safe, the ceramics are designed for those who have a love of artful accessories for the home.
