Decorating with Majolica Pottery
by Johann Erickson
Using Italian pottery to enhance the beauty of your home and to give it an elegant and romantic style of the Renaissance is a great choice. The detailed craftsmanship that you find in each of Italian pottery can be found in each and every piece that is created from the wall décor to the dinner ceramics.
Wall masks are a wonderful way to bring out the beauty of your kitchen or even a dinner room. These unique ceramic Italian pottery wall masks are all hand created and hand painted in Florence, Italy. The detail of each mask and piece of fruit is so life like and rich in color you will want to pick a grape. Some of these masks depict ancient Roman Gods and throughout history were considered to have great power. Bring some of their power into your home to watch over your kitchen and help with preparing wonderful meals for your family as they watch while adorning your walls.
You will also be able to bring to life that old table in the entryway or hallway with classical Majolica pottery. The beautiful urns that are hand painted and created with vivid colors and styles will wake up any dull area of your home. Deciding on which urn expresses your personality or the personality of your home may be the hardest decision. You will be able to choose from the Tuscania Orcio "Aceto di Vino" which calls upon the Tuscan landscape for its beauty and design, the Maremma Tuscan orcio with rings which sets the scene of the "Maremma" which is a unique natural Park along the coast of Tuscany, the Majolica Masterpiece Tuscan Orcio Montelupo which depicts the "Old World" look and feel, among many other exquisite designs.
Italian fountains can breathe a bit of fresh air into your home as well. The free standing round fountain with Putto will look beautiful any place you decide to give it a home.
