IMPRUNETA TERRACOTTA COLLECTION
Welcome to Villa & Garden's Impruneta Terracotta Collection. All of our terracotta pieces come directly from workshops in Italy where the finest terra cotta in the world is found and produced. Every item we carry is made by hand, using traditional methods passed on from generation to generation. Quality clay, time-tested firing techniques, and the experienced artisan's hand, make each piece unique demonstrating the individual attention given to every item.
Terra cotta exists in many qualities and forms The world’s finest clay comes from Impruneta, a small village nestled in the Tuscan hills a few kilometers from Florence, Italy. Blessed with land that is naturally rich in iron, copper, calcium, and aluminum, the town has been well known for its exceptional quality terra cotta and craftsmanship for centuries. Hard earth rich in minerals, as pictured, is mined from the surrounding hills, ground to a powder, and mixed with water to make this coarse bodied clay. During the kiln firing process it develops its renown pale, pink color. The unique composition of the clay allows these terracotta pieces to withstand extreme temperatures, making it the most durable in the world. Our terracotta is backed by a lifetime guarantee against frost. This, along with the hand of a skilled artisan, makes it the absolute best available. Do not be deceived by cheap imitations manufactured in other countries. Many have attempted to duplicate the Italian styles, but the quality of Italian terracotta only comes from Italy - and specifically the Tuscan region.
