Sial is a small family business in the tiny village Torrita di Siena, 25 miles outside of Siena. Inspired by memories of the artist's childhood, Sial creates cheerful ceramics handpainted with lead-free enamels in vivid colors that reflect the typical Tuscan countryside: small houses with sun-drenched red roofs, cypress-lined landscapes, and trees bursting with fruit. Each piece is created entirely by hand in the old world tradition, and each "imperfection" is a testament to its authenticity and evidence of the artist's hand.
