The countryside on a plate

  • • Taticchi learned her craft from a master in Deruta
  • • Her pieces are exhibited all over Japan
  • • Her daughter Caterina is a jewellery designer

In Perugia’s Old Town everybody knows Maria Antonietta Taticchi. Her picturesque studio is a splash of colour and beauty where you often find locals and foreign tourists. Maria Antonietta started her career when she was 16. For four years she had the opportunity to learn the secrets of ceramic painting from master Guido Montanari, in Deruta, a well-known centre of maiolica manufacture. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Perugia, she opened her own workshop in the city centre. “Right from the start, I opted for quality rather than quantity production. The decoration on the ceramic is done by hand with the tip of the brush, making every piece unique”, she explains. A few years ago, her daughter Caterina joined her in the workshop as a ceramic jewellery designer.

Decorated plates - Umbria

These decorative plates are handcrafted from terracotta. The plates are partly glazed and partly left natural, creating a contrasting interplay between the terracotta’s natural brown hue and the various glaze hues. The plates are painted inspired by the different colours and views of the Umbrian countryside during the four seasons.
