Owner description: The workshop production is based on artistic ceramics in typical siennese style, and many others conceived by Staccioli's family itself featured by decoration in a range of different shades of blue, green and salmon obtained by particular maxing of colours. Sonia's majolica's achieved their last touch by over glaze firing. Temperature ranges from 930° to 1050° Celsius. All the "Bianco e Nero" articles are totally hand made and completely lead free.

“Beautiful ceramics”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

I purchased a lovely plate in September 2012. Sonia was very friendly and helpful. They have a wonderful variety of items. I particularly like the green color of the pottery. I purchased a plate and every time I look at it I am reminded of the lovely day my wife and I experienced in Siena.

“Lovely shop and lovely people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013

I had the pleasure of stumbling across this little gem whilst wandering the streets of Siena. Like the other reviewers here, it was wonderful to see Sonia and her father (Walter) paint in the shop as I pottered (pardon the pun). They create the most beautiful pieces and meeting the artists who created (and signed) your item is something unique. Thoroughly recommend visiting this store and learning more about their work, not to mention buying the perfect momento (or three!) to remind you of this lovely part of the world.

“Great Pottery! Nice People!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

I made the mistake of wishing I had purchased something from them and didn't actually purchase it until I came back to the States. They were very professional to deal with, gave me all of my options, and kept me updatd every step of the way. Paying them through PayPal is also the way to go. Much less $$ than an international wire transfer. As for the pottery, it is gorgeous! Very authentic and I can't wait to go back to Siena to visit their shop again.

“True Senese artwork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012 via mobile

Whenever I go to Siena, I look for meaningful ceramics by Senese artists. I found a wonderful artist yesterday when I visited Siena - Sonia and her father are so welcoming. Their shop is jam packed full of their colorful and beautifully designed artwork. I found what I was looking for - a tile of "la lupa" to take home to my studio in Australia which I have called "La Lupina" - perfetto!!! Sonia has something for everyone and is so very helpful - Posso solo dire 'va' e divertiti!!'
