Whether the timeless beauty of the Tuscan hills, the Venetian light, or the cultural richness of its cities, Italy has long been a source of inspiration for artists and designers. So it is for us.
This spring, we traveled to the province of Brescia, in Northern Italy, to visit our pewter workshops. These trips are an integral part of our design process. Come along with us over the next weeks and months as we share stories of crafting match Pewter, and highlight some of the beauty experienced along the way. Below are some photographs from this last visit.
Lago d'Idro and the foothills of the Dolomites.
On the way into the mountains we pass through many small towns, each with their own character and array of colors.
Have you ever seen a crosswalk so close to a front door?
Modern stucco surrounds the marble remnants of a 15th century Roman church in the old center of Brescia. The two spigots at the lower left are from an ancient communal water source.
When you look up in Italy, you never know what gifts await.
In the not too distant past an osteria was mostly a wine bar that served very simple food — bread, cheeses and salamis. Today they emphasize food more. Hence the inscription, con Cucina — with kitchen.
The Capitolium Brixia is a Roman temple in the heart of the old town center of Brescia. It was built in 73 AD.
This is the result of many years of exposure to the elements in the mountains.
