The centerpiece at the gift shop at A Latte More Café is handcrafted Deruta ceramic ware. The brilliant, colorfully glazed majolica bowls, pitchers, plates and cups are quick to catch your eye.
Among several small towns in Italy with a history of producing tin-glazed majolica, Deruta is the largest producer. It’s also the one village that has created these wares continuously since the 14th century. Today more than 300 firms in Deruta are at work producing majolica. At these firms, the tin-glazing techniques and the shapes, patterns and colors have come down through the centuries from one generation to the next. With all their variety, these functional, collectible ceramic pieces are uniquely Deruta.
Have fun looking through our selection of Deruta ceramic ware. You can order online and ship to your destination, or stop in at A Latte More to see the variety of patterns and shapes firsthand.
