Decorating the stone

Hand painting – based on the decorative tradition developed on the Amalfi coast – can also be applied on tiles, panels, tables and any custom-made lava stone product.

It was the Sanseverino princes who began the local ceramics industry, which dates back to the late Renaissance.
The industry has come to be a symbol of Vietri sul Mare, a living artistic expression you can still see in craft workshops along the Amalfi coast.
We have taken the traditional art of ceramic hand-painting of Vietri and turned it into something innovative and open to modern interior applications.
We have transferred the Vietri hand-painting techniques traditionally applied on terracotta tiles and surfaces to volcanic stone.
The result is a strong, resistant and versatile glazed lava stone surface with a wide range of applications that are unattainable with terracotta – from tiles to wall claddings, from bar counters to kitchen countertops, as well as durable stone for outdoor environments.

 Key-features:

high resistance compared to terracotta pattern
Indoor and Outdoor
Wide range of applications (tiles, tables, bar counters)
Sizes: from 100 mm up to XXL 2400 mm
Custom patterns
