    About Artistica Italian Gallery

    “Shop in Italy…
    without leaving your own town!”

    is our motto and pretty much says it all, because Artistica has the greatest selection for anyone looking for quality authentic Italian ceramics, Glass and unique gifts!

    Our Products...
    The name Artistica is not just the name of
    our business, but also a brand that we have cultivated for  many years. Our beautiful pottery and Italian Majolica is highly regarded throughout the USA.

    Each piece, marked with the Artistica brand name, is shipped with Artistica's quality wax-like string seal along with our Certificate of Origin. Often customers will ask for Artistica Pottery by name.
    Since 1990 Artistica has been the leading company when comes to imported, high-end, Renaissance-inspired, genuine Italian Majolica.
    Our specialty is highly decorated Tuscan "Old World" home decor ceramics, painstakingly hand painted by master Italian artisans.
    Artistica’s authentic Majolica wares are museum-quality reproductions from 15th and 16th century originals, with a wide variety that spans from decorative jugs, urns, canisters and dinnerware, to cache pots and wall plates in classic Tuscan and Umbrian styles.
    Recently, following the 2008 real estate and housing crisis that slowed down the home decor business, we expanded our product line of dinnerware, table top, glassware and gift items, as well as expanding our focus toward the retail market with direct-to-consumer sales; a planned move supported by Artistica's award-winning catalog and a revamped web site. Artistica showcases an always expanding product line that now features well over 2,500 products!
    Our recently expanded tabletop selection includes the renowned Deruta hand painted dinnerware, along with Vietri, Faenza and Murano Glass products.

    We manufacture it… We import it… We distribute it…

    In order to assure the best quality and price points, we maintain full control of our production, closely working with our Italian workshops under exclusivity agreements and often absorbing most of their individual production.

    The beauty of imperfection...
    All Artistica’s products are hand-molded and painted free hand.
    Certain variations in size or color, paint smudges, the odd fingerprint and the slight looseness of lids, are characteristic of a handmade piece made by an artisan. These features add to the uniqueness of each piece of art and are not to be considered  manufacturing defects.

    Although our products are hand made by small artisan workshops scattered throughout Italy — Sicily, Abruzzi, and the Amalfi Coast — most of our products come from the renowned hilltop town of Deruta and small villages surrounding Florence, in the central Italian regions of Umbria and Tuscany. These areas have been known for centuries as the "Lands of Saints and Poets”.

    Did You Know that...

    Artistica's web site was the very first in the Italian ceramics industry when created at the inception of the commercial opening of the world wide web in early 1990's?...  Yeap! Although the shopping cart feature was added a few years later, our full product like was uploaded in our very first web site in the early 1990's....

    In addition to the Artistica's products that can be viewed in Las Vegas by anyone at the Treasure's Island Buffet, a private high-end large selection of a Artistica's custom "Serpentine Handles" Amphorae discretely decorate the Mirage hotel executive suites...

    Artistica's products are continuously featured in prime time TV  Shows.
    Although copyrights issues restrict us for mentioning these shows by name, here a few hints: L.A. based reality show on E!... NJ and Orange County based reality shows on Bravo... Famous cooking show on the Food Channel... Multi year running soap opera show on ABC... and many more.

    Artistica's large Tuscan "Orcio" Urns were selected by the late Gianni Versace to decorate the patio and pool area of his South Beach mansion.
