For nearly three hundred years, glorious flowers have been hand-sculpted in this small town just outside of Naples, which is called Capodimonte, or “top of the mountain.” The heirloom-quality “forever flowers” created in this centuries-old workshop are so stunning and lifelike that they appear to have been freshly picked and laid across the table. Each petal and leaf is accented with natural veins to mimic a real flower, and if you look closely enough, you may be able to spot some of the whorls of the artisan’s fingerprint: a true testament to the handcrafted process.
Uno Alla Volta invites you to join us in watching our skilled ceramists Ciro and Aniello create one singular flower.
Here are a few of their latest creations:
