Made in Mexico
When the Amoretti family launched their first collection of vases and chargers in 2006, they had been living in Mexico for only four years. A year later, the four brothers and their mom, Anna, introduced a hand-painted ceramic collection. Copper cookware and glassware collections followed. The pieces blend Italian tradition with Mexican craftsmanship. “They’re rustic, elegant, but at the same time, very natural,” says Andrea Amoretti, the eldest brother.
Amoretti’s handblown glass and hand-painted dinnerware make you feel as if you’re spending the afternoon in on a patio in the Tuscan countryside. “My brothers and I grew up in a house just like that,” Andrea says. The hammered copper cookware has family connections too. “My mom is from Southern Italy, and copper cookware is very common there,” he says. “I love the idea that you can cook a meal in our copper pots and then place that same beautiful pot on the table for everyone to share.”
Each Amoretti piece is made by hand, giving the collection a sense of great care. The ceramics are hand-painted and hand-signed. Each glass piece, inspired by shapes and colors used in the 18th century, is mouth-blown and hand-engraved. The cookware is hammered by copper masters to reach the desired shape; handcrafted bronze handles m and an inside tin layer makes each piece feel like a work of art.
