Positano and its ceramics, the realm of excellent pottery

Italy is worldwide famous for the art of ceramics, thanks to the various authentic masterpieces realized in many places. Montelupo (Florence), Deruta, Caltagirone, Grottaglie, Vieri sul Mare and… Positano. The ceramics made in Positano are something different and out of competitions, they are works of art.  Let us guide you in a marvelous trip to discover the original art of ceramics, you will agree with us.

Positano pottery and all the production of the Amalfi Coast is special for several reasons, first of all its ancient tradition. There are only few workshops in this region and they all respect an old belief, they create their masterpieces by following the traditional method. This procedure starts with the natural elements and finish with the creations of exclusive objects. The success of the Positano ceramics, in fact, is due to the configuration of the soil, rich in clay and volcanic material, both of which are precious for the development of the local pottery.

The particular handmade decorations create a unique combination of light, an intense expression of beauty that you can only find in the products of the Amalfi Coast, especially in Positano. Ceramiche Casola, the first company we’re glad to present to you, has a specific aim:  (We work) “to make more beautiful the houses in Italy and all over the world and to export everywhere the beauty of Positano”.

They produce fine dishes, jars, jugs, decorative and functional handmade objects, directly decorated in their laboratories to ensure to each customer an unparalleled product.

Another name you should remember for your next trip to Positano is “Ceramiche Piccadilly”, founded by Mario Criscuolo in 1981. Here you will find a huge choice of dinnerware and accessories, from the umbrella stands to centrepieces. Blue, yellow, green and white meet harmonically on the surface of these precious artifacts, evocating the enticing landscape that leave everyone breathless.

The last step of this incredible tour is Ceramica Assunta. They produce their splendid ceramics since 1948, three years after the end of WWII. They are specialized in the creation of tableware, but they can elaborate any kind of objects, with a wide choice of decorations.

Positano during the twentieth century became a renowned idyllic getaway, especially among the American and British populations of intellectuals and writers.
And, together with the luxury tourism, Positano and Amalfi viewed a prosperous growing of ceramics companies with the aim of filling the luggages of the guests with magnificent souvenirs.

What Clients Say

  • Amazing Experience

    We visited Sorrento in May and decided to rent a private boating experience through Restart Boat tours. Their service was incredible and very professional. Our Captain, Francesco was amazing and took us to all over the island of Capri and we were able to see all of the best sites. We had free time to eat lunch and explore the city of Anacapri. Highly recommend this outstanding company. Thank you for making our honeymoon special - this was the highlight of the trip.
