Add some Italian flair to your table with these delightful bowls from Vietri. The perfect size for serving olive oil and other condiments, these hand-painted terra cotta bowls are as versatile as they are adorable. This set contains two bowls whimsically decorated with a pig and fish and painted in the bold primary colors that are the iconic signature of ceramics from Campania.
On the rocky coast of Campania, in the southwest of Italy, ceramics have been an important industry for hundreds of years. Stroll through any town on the Amalfi coast, and you’ll be struck by the bold lines and bright, Mediterranean colors of ceramic pitches, tiles, and dinnerware in charming shop after shop. The heart of the business is in the town of Vietri sul Mare, where artisans still use traditional methods of throwing, shaping, and decorating their work by hand to ensure the highest quality in every piece.
Founded by a mother and daughter who first fell in love with Italian handcrafts in 1983, Vietri partners with local artisans to share this incredible piece of Italian culture with the world. Ceramica Artistica Solimene, the artisans that produce these bowls, is based in Vietri sul Mare on the Amalfi coast. Opened in 1947, the business has been passed down through many generations of the Solimene family. The skilled artisans work in an incredible, curving, avant-garde building covered in ceramic tiles, and the work done within those walls is some of the world’s best. Vietri celebrates all that is irresistibly Italian: a love of life, people, nature, and good living.
