Handmade apothecary jars and objects on request
The Almaviva studio can manufacture collections of apothecary jars: albarello with cylindrical shape that once was used to store dried herbs, chevrette with handle and beak for pouring syrups, theriac pot, etc. Our replicas of apothecary jars are made on a potter’s wheel, fired a first time, and hand-glazed. The decorations are hand-painted onto the raw unbaked glaze and then fired a second time.
Our atelier is also commissioned to handcraft tablewares: plates, dishes, dinner-services, bowls, cups, tureens, etc.
Using original 18th century moulds, we can also produce copies of various types of ancient pottery: tulip-shaped vase from Delft, Medici vases, candlesticks, ewers, trays, decorative artifacts, etc. The decorations are painted on demand and can be personalized with initials, coats of arms, etc.
