Ceramica Pinto Vietri Hand-Painted Ceramic Jug

€190

The name of this jug is quite fitting for Ceramica Pinto, as Vietri sul Mare is where its workshop has been based since 1850. The ceramic house honours age-old techniques, crafting and painting each piece by hand. For inspiration, it looks to established artists, designers and architects, such as Gio Ponti and Giuseppe Capogrossi.

Ceramica Pinto

Behind Ceramica Pinto’s creations is a process that starts with red clay, which is shaped either on the potter’s wheel or with a plaster mould from its vast collection dating back to the 1940s. Pieces are left to dry in the open air – thanks to Vietri sul Mare’s mild climate – before they're fired, dipped in a bath of pre-prepared liquid glaze, and meticulously painted by hand. The final firing sees the glaze interact with the metal oxides, creating its signature majolica-specific palette. As for the texture, that's achieved with a liquid glass coating in Bianco Vetri: a bespoke shade of white.
