With Memorial Day approaching, now is a time of remembrance to reflect upon all that our veterans and active duty soldiers have done for us. We all know brave soldiers in our lives, whether they are our husbands, fathers, grandfathers, brothers, sons, daughters, mothers, grandmothers, sisters or friends. Many of them share their stories with us of their duty near and far, and the reverence and respect we have for them is unwavering.
There is never enough we can do to show just how thankful we are to our troops and veterans. This year, we can show our appreciation with a display of our American pride, whether it is with an American flag glass chime we hang with respect or patriotic jewelry we wear with pride.
At Uno Alla Volta, we say you can do it all. Celebrate the veterans and troops you love with a meal filled with patriotic dishware. Our friends, Weronika and Jacek, paid tribute to our great nation with this exclusive Americana collection. In their buzzing workshop in Boleslawiec, Poland these ceramic artisans hand-paint vibrant symbols of the United States – stars, bows and heart-shaped flags – with carved sponges and fine brushwork. These are perfect for a summer barbeque, your morning coffee, or for baking a classic American apple pie.

Wear your pride with Kim’s Millefiori Freedom Hearts jewelry collection, which includes a necklace, earrings, and a brooch. Kim, our California artisan, creates this American flag design using a millefiori caning technique. Patterns are created by layering different strips and shapes of colorful polymer clay that are then stretched and pulled into long canes. Each cane is sliced into thin cross-sections, which reveal the intricate patterns. Every millefiori clay piece showcases glass bead accents and gold-leafed edges.
Decorate your home in remembrance with an American flag glass chime. Our Indiana artisan hand-selects colorful glass to create each patriotic wind chime. Once selected, each piece is cut and fused in a kiln to remove any sharp edges, and then put through a special annealing process to ensure strength.
Garden with pride with Margaret’s patriotic watering can. In a celebration of liberty, Margaret of Virginia hand-paints each patriotic watering can in a meticulous, seven hour process. Once the design is complete, she bakes each one to ensure the decoration can withstand the elements. This beautiful piece can be used indoors or out, and is as fun and festive as it is functional.
Capturing the beauty of the USA’s red, white and blue, our floral artisans in Baja, California handcraft this lush Americana wreath of natural celosia, ammobium, and eucalyptus arranged by hand on a heart-shaped natural twig base.
Thank you to all who have served and all who are serving in the United States military. We salute you all for protecting the land of the free and the home of the brave.
