Ceramic pepper grinders

When we were in Radda in Chianti in May we found a small shop that sold ceramic pepper grinders with hand painted scenes of the chianti region. They also had olive oil jars and other items with this same design (trees, hills, vinyards, etc). I have been trying to discover a way to contact this shop to see if we could purchase one of these items, but have been unsuccesful so far. Does anyone have a way for us to contact this shop? I would appreciate any help anyone could give.

Thank you.

I am also trying to contact a ceramic shop in Radda. A wine tour bus dropped us off at the beginning of the main street. We walked up the street, not too far, and found a ceramic shop on the right hand side of the street. I bought an olive oil ceramic bottle about 6 inches tall with a silver removable spout. On the bottom of the ceramic bottle it says Fatto A Mano Italy and then there is a signature that is hard to read. It looks like. Bzo (i?).

Thank you,

hi susan,

most likely, you visited "techo casa" where they have all sorts of ceramic items such as you mentioned. i am not sure they have a web site as they are local people.

I can't help you with the shop in Radda, but I can give you the name of the shop/studio in Deruta where my ceramic pepper grinders were made: google 'Gialletti Giulio Deruta' and you will find their website. I don't see pepper grinders there, but if you email them, perhaps they can send you pictures.

We have bought several things from them in Deruta, but we found the two we purchased in a shop in Siena....ten-inch pepper grinders are beautiful.
