Boston gets a “Splash” of Puglia

Thanks to all of the delightful people who came to Friday’s “Splash of Puglia” party!Splash party at Giardini di Sole
Sunshine streamed into the showroom Friday afternoon.  It was a great way to kick off the weekend!  Did our guest of honor order this beautiful weather?  Sunshine was the perfect backdrop for the energy and color of Giovanna Alò’s beautiful tableware.

As your eyes danced among the tables, rich aromas of herbs and oil tickled your nose.  Aldo D’Amico prepared three savory and one sweet dishes.  He is kind enough to share these recipes, and you’ll find them in upcoming blog posts.

Glass in hand, there was great company and conversations as you admired some of the new pieces that arrived in our Boston showroom.

Building on the Splash tableware line is the individual deep bowl.  About twice as deep as and half as narrow than the traditional soup bowl, it works for cereal, cafe au lait, or even as a small side dish serving piece.

What a treat to see this olive oil server! This joins the olive oil servers in our Bella Frutta, Limoni and Quattro Stagione lines.  I love how the color trails along its rounded edge.


Ceramic medallions on necklaces at Giardini di SoleThese necklaces with ceramic medallions were displayed creatively on other ceramic pieces. Featuring a variety of glazes, there’s strong energy, vitality and style in each shape.  I loved the metallic glazes, but then again, the intensity of the colored ones were great, too.  And what about that modern day cave woman bead on the right?  It’s totally National Geographic!

The Splash installation will be up through the SOWA Art Walk on May 6.  We’re working on making “Splash” available in our online shop, so you can easily order this tableware even if you aren’t in Boston!
