Always a favorite, the Roberto footed bowl has a hand-formed base and a pair of tall graceful handles of hand-twisted ceramic. The silver-blue glaze and the distressed finish make it a natural choice for a porch, terrace, or foyer. A pair filled with graceful ferns or English ivy would add to garden steps or to an entryway.

The silver-blue glaze of the Arno collection was inspired by the river that runs through the heart of Florence, home of the Italian craftsmanship that distinguishes our Fortunata collections. The other artistic feature of the Arno collection is the ceramic curls that belong only on these pieces. Each piece is piece is hand thrown on a potter’s well, hand decorated and finished with a glazing process that leaves a distressed patina on the terracotta bases.
ABOUT FORTUNATA POTTERY: Each Fortunata piece captures the tradition and charm of the ancient Tuscan workshops where the ceramics are skillfully hand thrown using a unique mixture of select clays. Every Fortunata piece is a unique combination of creative design and traditional skills. These pieces are imported directly from Italy.
*Evidence of handcrafted work includes the slight color and size variations making the pieces truly one-of-a-kind and highly collectable. Perhaps the most important feature of the Fortunata collection is the unique, heavily distressed, antique look created by uneven glazing.
