Italian Terra Cotta Pots
Imprunetta, Italy

We offer a large variety of hand-made pots in different sizes. These historic designs originate from the Renaissance, and are made of the famous Imprunetta clay that is resistant to frost and freeze damage.

Italian Pietra Serena

This type of stone can best be compared to limestone in terms of texture and hardness. The major difference is that this stone is of a light grey color, and is the standard material used by masons in Tuscany for centuries. In Tuscany pietra serena is used for most stone surfaces such as streets, interior and exterior stairs, window and door surrounds, interior finishes for floors, fireplace surrounds and other architectural elements. We work directly with a stone quarry, famous for historical reproductions for the Belli Arte buildings and gardens throughout Tuscany.

CUSTOM WORK:

This material is custom and no stock items are available. The stone is extracted directly from the quarry and is worked based on the characteristics of the stone block and its intended uses. Custom orders generally need a minimum 12 week lead time.

Historical applications where an antique patina is desired can be recreated by a flame technique and special treatment that is the property of the artisan. In a moderately humid environment the stone will patina naturally in 1 to 2 years!

SALVAGE ITEMS:

Salvage materials are stone flooring, fireplace surrounds, mantelpieces, architectural elements, cotto products, wrought iron (ferro battuto,) for home or garden.These architectural elements are non-stocking items and subject to availability.
