‘Sicilia’ is a pottery shop specialising uniquely in Sicilian ceramics and situated in the attractive seaside town of Lyme Regis, where the Devon and Dorset coastlines meet. There you will find plates and bowls of all sizes, ranging from small side plates and little olive dishes to large oval or round platters and beautifully decorated fruit and salad bowls.

There is also a wide choice of jugs and mugs and many other colourful wares for both practical and ornamental purposes.

These striking pieces are produced and hand painted by the local craftsmen and artists using the age old traditional methods of the three main ceramic production centres in the island. They have all been personally chosen and acquired by the owner directly from the Sicilian potteries which he frequently visits.

The very bright and ‘hot’ coloured pieces are mainly from Santo Stefano di Camastra on the north coast while most of the more intricate and ornate designs, often predominantly blue and yellow, come from the beautiful city of Caltagirone situated in the high ground in the south east of the island, or from Sciacca on the south west coastline where the pottery is traditionally ‘crackle glazed’.

All three areas have their own very distinctive styles and traditions which reflect both the Islamic and European influences to which this Mediterranean island has been subjected over the millennia.

This pottery is not only a pleasure to have and to use in the kitchen or dining room but many of the pieces are also works of art in their own right which will add a bit of colour to the home or make ideal presents for those special occasions.

All the plates have holes in the rim on the back to enable hanging on the wall.
