Italian Antique Ceramics

Puglia or Apulia is the southernmost region of Italy, steeped in history from the ancient Greeks, Romans and Byzantines. Many more have all followed one another to ruling Puglia and have all left their historical mark on the region. Puglia the heel of Italy’s “boot”, known for its hilltop towns, centuries old farmland, and hundreds of kilometres of sun-washed coastline.
Handmade ceramic and terracotta pots have been produced since ancient times thanks to the rich red clay of the region. Terracotta is a simple type of ceramic made of porous clay fired at high temperatures making the finished product much harder to break.
One of the giants of pots is the Capasoni, they are large containers used in place of barrels to store wine. The largest of these stand up to 1.5m tall and holding over 200L.
Passata bowls have a stunning green and cream glaze on the inside once used to make passata sauce by leaving them in the sun full of tomatoes.
Grottaglie the "city of many caves", stands on a hill a few kilometres from Taranto is world-famous as the capital of ceramic pottery in Puglia.
