Vietri Pottery Italian Dishes, Flatware, & Decor
Bring the intimacy, ambiance and tradition of Italy into your dining experience with Vietri Pottery. While we can't all live in Italy, we can enjoy their beautiful dinnerware and the feel it brings to our dining table. All Vietri dishes are meticulously hand-crafted and beautifully hand-painted in Italy. The serendipitous story of Vietri started in 1983 with a family trip to the Amalfi Coast of Italy. A mother and her two daughters, Lee, Susan and Frances Gravely, fell in love with the artistry of the hand-painted and colorful clay dishes used in the hotel at which they were staying. They asked the hotelier about who made the Italian dishes and where they were made in Italy. Using their taxi-cab driver as a translator and navigator, they located the factory and met with the owner, Don Vincenzo Solimene. In less than a half of a week and with a handshake with Mr. Solimene, the three ladies left Italy with a suitcase teeming with samples and their dream to create a company that embodies the spirit and enchantment of the Italian dining culture. Today, Vietri still carries the line Vietri Campagna, which Mr. Solimene continues to produce for Vietri. However, Vietri now uses over 140 Italian artisans to create their "Irresistibly Italian" wood, ceramic and glass dining and home decor pieces.
Vietri Pottery is crafted of terra bianca, terra marrone or terra cotta clay in multiple regions of Italy including Umbria, Veneto, Tuscany and Campania. The Vietri china collections are made in the traditions of the artisans of the region in which they are made. Vietri continues to grow economically and expand their Italian dinnerware collections. We are proud to offer the entire line of Vietri Italian dinnerware, serving pieces, flatware, Italian lighting accessories, Italian garden pots, urns and planters, home decor and linens. If Vietri makes it, we have it. With Vietri dishes you can experience Italy every day!
