White dinnerware is never boring when it comes from Vietri Italian ceramics! The satiny glaze serves to accentuate the hand-applied decorative motifs, allowing the terra cotta glaze to show through in the rims and the hand-applied decorations. Allowing the terra cotta clay to show through gives each piece a rustic and Tuscan feel. Don't worry, any terra cotta showing is sealed in by Vietri's proprietary clear glaze. Build your Italian dinnerware collection all in White or throw in some accent pieces from the other wonderful colors in the Bellezza collection.
All Vietri Bellezza is made in Montelupo region of Tuscany where Vietri master artisans use old, 13th century techniques to craft the collection. Bellezza translates as “beauty” and Vietri does not fail to deliver on that moniker. Bellezza is made in five complimentary colors for easy mixing-and-matching: Bellezza Buttercream, Bellezza Celadon and Bellezza White.
The terra cotta pieces are hand decorated with ornament rolls and appliqués for a lacy look. Additional fish-shaped pieces are available in White, adding a note of oceanic whimsy. The terra cotta is allowed to show through at the edges and in the pressed embellishments. All place setting pieces are dishwasher safe. Select pieces are microwave and/or oven safe. Vietri recommends the Martellato stainless steel flatware and Vietri dot glass as compliments to the Vietri Bellezza white dinnerware collection.
