About the Maker

Known as “schizzato” in Italy, splatterware comes from humble origins. This centuries-old technique was used to easily add a splash of color to everyday earthenware which was otherwise unadorned. Our new stunning collaboration with IVO Angel and artisan Giulio Lucarini features a duo-tone Tuscan green on an ivory base. Each piece is handmade and hand-painted to order by Lucarini in his Cortona ceramic studio where he preserves this traditional art form.
