About Majolica Pottery

Majolica pottery gained international acclaim in the 16th century. Although Spanish and Italian potters both created in the Matilda style, the center of the movement focused on two Italian cities, Urbino and Venice. The original majolica designers created ornate decorative motifs. These themes often referenced ancient Greek and Roman legends.These early majolica pottery pieces featured sphinxes, cupids, griffins, and many other fantastical creatures. Venice tradesmen borrowed from both Islamic designs and Greek arabesque pieces to fashion majolica pottery. These Venetian works featured leaves and branches intertwined in ornate patterns. Urbino craftsmen took majolica pottery sophistication to the next level and adorned their pieces with grotesque caricatures and monsters.The Urbino pottery movement also inspired the creation of masks, statues, urns, and other bronze works. In reaction to this 'busy' style, the artisans of Faenza reinvented the majolica form. These tradesmen created plain white pieces in imitation of Chinese porcelain ceramics. The Faenza school influenced other European potters, particularly craftsmen in Holland.Collectors of majolica should study up on the movement's history and look for designs which maintain clean lines. Thanks to the double firing process by which majolica pieces are made, designs tend to remain crisp even hundreds of years after kilning. That said, you should watch out for lead glazed majolica. Research suggests that lead glazing may impart harmful chemicals to food, so keep your lead glazed majolica as keepsakes--don't use the pieces as dinnerware.
