We have a huge selection of beautiful and vibrant ceramics from Sicily, as well as the traditional pottery of Umbria and Tuscany. We continue to add new and exciting patterns to our collections. All of our products are made in small workshops where the artisans and their families produce individual works of art.
Our family began importing in 1982 and our goal has always been to import quality handmade and hand-decorated Italian ceramics. We keep a fully stocked warehouse in Santa Barbara, California and usually ship within one week of receipt of order.

Arte D’Italia offers the finest in imported Italian pottery and volcanic tables at discounted prices. The ceramics we import are defined as Majolica. To be considered such, an item must be made of European red clay. After the item dries and is fired the first time, it is dipped in a white, chalky coating over which the design is painted entirely freehand with lead-free mineral glazes; it is then fired again to bring out the colors of the various minerals.
We carry the largest collection of quality, handmade and hand-decorated Italian ceramics and volcanic tables in the western U.S., providing our customers with beautiful and unique items for their homes and gardens. Our extensive selection comes from Umbria, Tuscany and Sicily, but we are constantly on the lookout for new, exciting designs. We buy from small workshops where artisans and their families work together to produce these individual works of art, using techniques handed down through generations. Many of the designs we feature date back countless generations — some are derived from Renaissance artwork. Because most factories use a similar color palette, the majority of our pieces complement each other beautifully to create a perfectly set table, a tastefully decorated room or whatever your imagination envisions. Since our beginning in 1982, our family goal has been to bring quality handmade Italian ceramics to those in the states. To this day, we take pride in offering you these beautiful, unique and individual works of art!
