At Ceramiche d’Arte Tuscia, five local artists work to recreate the centuries-old traditions of Montelupo ceramicists. The shapes, colors, and designs reflect a variety of influences including Arabic, Spanish, and Renaissance Italian.
The Ceramiche d’Arte Tuscia workshop is surrounded by beautiful Tuscan countryside. On my last visit to Tuscia, I found three of the artists busy at work. The small building is like a museum, showcasing all the styles, sizes, and designs they’ve created over the years.
For me, Tuscia’s small workshop represents the best Italian ceramics has to offer. At Tuscia, artists are not just reproducing traditional ceramic pieces; they are creating their own unique artwork in a style that their ancestors have spent 600 years perfecting.
