D1 Biscornu – Deruta by GPA

This is the first design of the series “Deruta by GPA” inspired by old maiolica/pottery designs of Deruta art. Deruta is a beautiful old town of Umbria, Italy, full of history and art. We strongly advise you to pay a visit to this town. You’ll be enchanted….

A big thank to Mrs. Anna Lisa Piccioni, President of “Academy of Deruta Work” who has created for us beautiful beads, buttons and sewing accessories, and enabled us to design our models in tune with the antique Deruta designs.

Each maiolica/pottery button and bead is unique since it is handmade and painted only for Giulia Punti Antichi by Le Antiche Fuseruole. For this reason your “Deruta embroidery” is a unique piece of art.
