Vietri Costiera dishes are made of Terra Bianca earthenware, a clay that's indigenous to Italy. Firing each piece at a high temperature makes this durable earthenware even more so. The brilliant white background provides a backdrop onto which Vietri artists can impose the beautiful colors for which they're known.
Vietri dinnerware can be placed in the dishwasher, using non-abrasive, non-citrus detergent and the gentle, air-dry cycle. Handwashing is recommended for large pieces.
