Ann Marie's love of Italian craftmanship is on full display with our collection of fine ceramic homewares from Ubaldo Grazia. For hundreds of years, generations of the Grazia family mastered and passed on the tradition of "Majolica," a local potter's technique of handcrafting that involved using an opaque glazing process to bring out the bright colorful handpainted imagery underneath. Stunning for displays, and highly collectible, any Ubaldo Grazia piece immediately becomes the center of the room. For the nicer homes, or lovers of European class in homewares, Grazia makes a perfect wedding or housewarming gift.
Some of these traditional designs have been produced and manufactured by other artists in Deruta, but not all magolica is created equal, which we hope you'll see in Grazia majolica. Take a browse through the Grazia selection above, and you'll see how easy it is to fall in love with Italy. The Raffaellesco series offers stunning colors and exaggerated characters straight off an ancient Roman fresca. The Arabesco Luigi line features delicate rings of floral patterns over a bright white base, which the distinctive glazing process makes spectacular. The Fiori Rosso collection takes a rich red background and inverts the floral pattern in black and white for a singularly luxurious effect. No matter which Ubaldo Grazie piece you choose, you'll bring the best of Italy into your home. To view any of our other Italian ceramics, glassware or gifts, you can use our easy store menu at the top of the page, and simply select "Italy" to get started.
