The Rosa Pasta/ Soup Plate, Full Design, was handmade, painted and imported from Italy. This Rosa floral design displays multiple types of flowers. Rosa originates from the Abbruzzi region, in the small town of Castelli; home of Emilio Biordi, the first owner of Biordi Art Imports. Over time, Castelli, has become a famous center for ceramics in Italy. Here, one can find the Pardi family, whom, for now several generations, has painted these charming designs.
Castelli, precariously perched on a capricious ridge of the Apennines. In the shadow of Gran Sasso works Antonio Di Francesco, shaping the same earth that occasionally wobbles his wheel and studio. Antonio’s works and the views – breathtaking!
Italian ceramics are heirloom quality products, and can last lifetime with proper care. We have some suggestions that will preserve your majolica for years to come. Majolica is dishwasher safe, but many people choose to hand wash their pieces as a precaution. Because majolica is a porous material, some pieces are not meant to hold liquid for a long period of time. Check for warning labels before ordering a product, as the pieces that are most notorious for "sweating" are appropriately labeled. Majolica is sensitive to extreme temperatures, specifically boiling or freezing liquids. Pouring water with a rolling boil directly into a teapot, for example, may lead to breakage. To avoid this, temper the object. The industry standard is 620 degrees Celsius (1,148 degrees Fahrenheit). Quench the glass to cool it. Crazing is common in well used majolica. The tiny cracks in the glaze do not affect the functionality of your majolica. Majolica hand-crafted products should not be microwaved, as it may crack and/or break the ceramics.
