The Monte Lupo Story
The name Monte Lupo was taken from a small pottery village nestled in the hills of Tuscany called Monte Lupo Forentina. Monte Lupo has a unique ceramic history that can be seen in the use of bright, exciting colours and design that can still be purchased today. Another attribute of Monte Lupo Forentina was their skill of sharing responsibilities in the production of ceramic wares – many artists contributed to each piece of work, thus utilising the strengths of each individual artist. Here at Monte Lupo, we employ that same ethos of sharing the responsibilities of production. This ensures a high standard of quality and allows the artists to focus on, and refine, their skills. Not all of employees want to pursue the role of artist and this serves to strengthen the Monte Lupo team, due to the many facets of running a ceramic production studio, retail outlet and business services.
