Ricco Deruta Wall Clock

Unique ceramic wall clock from Umbria, Italy.

Ricco Deruta is a maker from the world-famous ceramics town – Deruta. Here artisans utilise rich clay deposits in the area and make all of their ceramics products by hand.

What makes it truly unique, that each such round wall clock is hand-decorated in style only typical to the local area, and nowhere else in the world. Furthermore, it has been established that such decorative elements date back to the middle ages when this part of Italy was the centre of ceramics production and innovation.

Such artisanship can add a much-needed touch of colour and character to plain white walls, or boring room.
