Welcome to the Italian Pottery Outlet!
Italian Pottery Outlet offers the finest in imported Italian pottery at discounted prices. Our family scours the Italian countryside searching for the most interesting Italian ceramic designs and patterns, and we proudly bring these handmade, hand-painted, one-of-a-kind ceramic delights to you! The ceramics we import are defined as Majolica. To be considered such, an item must be made of European red clay. After the item dries and is fired the first time, it is dipped in a white, chalky coating over which the design is painted entirely freehand with lead-free mineral glazes; it is then fired again to bring out the colors of the various minerals.

We carry the largest collection of quality, handmade and hand-decorated Italian ceramics in the west, providing our customers with beautiful and unique items for their homes and gardens. Our extensive selection comes from Umbria, Tuscany and Sicily, as well as new and exciting patterns from regions all over Italy. We buy from small workshops where artisans and their families produce individual works of art using techniques handed down through generations. Many of the designs we feature date back countless generations — some are derived from Renaissance artwork. Because most factories use a similar color palette, the majority of our pieces complement each other beautifully to create a perfectly set table, a tastefully decorated room or whatever your imagination envisions. Since our beginning in 1982, our family goal has been to bring quality handmade Italian ceramics to those in the states. To this day, we take pride in offering these beautiful, unique and individual works of art!
