Many people now use their patio as the center of their home entertaining. But for some homes, the patio is still simply a concrete pad in the back yard. If you want to start using your patio for barbecues, outdoor dining or just as somewhere to sit and relax, then maybe the time has come to do something about the drab, old, and perhaps cracked concrete slab. Why not give it a makeover, and improve the value of your home at the same time? No time to travel to Italy, choose your piece, and ship it back home? Consider the convenience of eCommerce shopping instead. Artistica.com offers a breathtaking selection of hand painted Italian ceramic vases, urns, table, and statues to warm-up any stark concrete patio space.
Each piece, marked with the Artistica brand name, is shipped with Artistica's quality wax-like string seal along with our Certificate of Origin. Often customers will ask for Artistica Pottery by name. Since 1990 Artistica has been the leading company when comes to imported, high-end, Renaissance-inspired, genuine Italian Majolica. Our specialty is highly decorated Tuscan "Old World" home decor ceramics, painstakingly hand painted by master Italian artisans.
Considering a wooden patio table from a big box building store? Think again. Unlike mosaic or inlaid tables no glues, mortar, or grout are used to create hand painted Italian ceramic tables. As the ceramic glaze is fired (along with hand painted decorations directly onto the surface) the tabletop is sealed completely rendering it extremely sanitary and very easy to clean. Ceramic tables and bench tops are 2 inches thick and fully glazed.
If you get it right, your outdoor concrete space will come alive like the avenues of Tuscany. Minimalist living principles revolve around purchasing high-quality, timeless pieces instead of mediocre trends. Italian ceramics have been a central element to outdoor spaces for thousands of years...let's assume this trend isn't going anywhere!
