Ceramics from Santo Stefano di Camastra

I was recently in a little town in Sicily that specializes in ceramics called Santo Stefano di Camastra.

There were beautiful ceramics to buy all along the main street. Tons of shops. It is a little town of only about 5,000 people but it seemed like almost everyone was in the ceramics business or had relatives that were.

And there were ceramic items all over town - shop signs, decorative elements on walls, fountains, walls, everywhere. I took a lot of photos. I'm not a great photographer but it will give an idea. (If you click on the image, you can see it in greater detail)

Here's an example of a shop sign, in this case for a shop dealing in cell phones, done in majolica.

Now maybe you can't go to Sicily every time you want to find great ceramics, but it is easy enough to check on eBay to see if there is something nice. Here's an example of what is available now:
