Vietri Incanto mug- stripe
Incanto comes to us from a workshop in Nove, Italy, just north of Venice. A family of master molders has worked on the collection for years, and they maintain their family and Italian heritage while crafting innovative designs. We have had the privilege of watching the artisans form the pieces of dark clay on the wheel, etch in the designs, wash them in a white glaze, and put them in the kiln to fire.

The Baroque style is inspired by the elaborate architectural curves of 17th century Europe, and the ruffle design mimics the soft waves of the nearby Adriatic Sea. The stripe is reminiscent of the stately columns of the grand Italian Palladian villas along the Veneto’s Brenta river, and the lace was inspired by the famed lace of Venice’s Burano Island.
