Pottery in Deruta, Italy

Beautiful vase in Deruta, Italy.

Deruta is in the Umbria region of central Italy. Long known as a center of refined maiolica manufacture, Deruta remains known for its ceramics, which are exported worldwide.

We stopped here for a visit at a pottery for a demonstration of their craft and to enjoy their splendid collection.  Some of the group even purchased a few pieces.

Kiln for small pieces.

Lots of red in this piece.
