About Us - Our Products, Policies, Location & Hours
Bellezza Home and Garden specializes in fine hand-painted Italian ceramics known as majolica. Since 1995, we have collaborated with the best artists in Italy, many of whom supply their products to us exclusively, to create the most unique collection of Italian ceramics and Italian pottery in the United States. Bellezza's extensive selection of Italian ceramics combines new and traditional designs representative of the extraordinary history and superior craftsmanship of our artists. The beauty of our collection of Italian pottery transcends time and fashion.
The members of Bellezza's knowledgeable staff have diverse backgrounds, including art, interior design and even culinary art, but we all share a passion for Italian ceramics and Italian pottery. With this passion, we will help you to create or, if necessary, design a beautiful collection of Italian ceramics for your own home.
New products continually arrive at Bellezza. Visit our website for frequent updates of our Italian pottery.
Care of Majolica:
Bellezza Italian ceramics will last a lifetime with proper care and usage: All tableware and serving pieces are lead safe. Some decorative pieces may be labeled "Decorative Only" if lead levels exceed federal restrictions. Bellezza Italian ceramics are not oven proof. Due to the metal content in the clay, our Italian ceramics should not be used in the microwave. Temper dishes and serving pieces before serving very hot foods or liquids to avoid possible thermal shock and cracking. Dishwashing is safe in most dishwashers; however, extremely hot water temperatures should be avoided.
