Alessandro relays the stories of Babbo Natale through his whimsical designs, providing us a glimpse into Old St. Nick's daily adventures leading up to preparations for each holiday season.

Product Dimensions: 10"Sq, 3.25"H, 2.5 Quarts
Dishwasher Safe - We recommend using a non-fragrant/non-citrus, non-abrasive detergent on the air dry cycle (or econo heat when available). It is recommended to place the dishes so they avoid touching during the high pressure dishwashing and as such we recommend you do not overload the dishwasher. All dishes should be dried thoroughly before being stored.

Oven Safe - VIETRI's casserole and baking dishes can be used in most conventional ovens and dishwashers. They are handcrafted of very dense clays and fired at high temperatures, making them heat resistant up to 400°F. Do not use casserole lids in the oven, unless otherwise noted. Hot casseroles and baking dishes should never be placed on cool, damp, or unprotected surfaces. VIETRI bakeware should never be taken directly from the refrigerator to the oven due to the extreme temperature change, nor should it be placed directly from oven to freezer. The handles of these pieces are decorative and should not be used for support. Please remove the bakeware from the oven by holding the body of the dish, supporting the base. It is important that baking and casserole pieces in our Old St. Nick collection be cured. To cure, fully submerge and soak piece in water for 15 minutes. This soaking prepares the dish, reduces cooking time, and prevents food from sticking.

Terra Bianca - A white earthenware clay that is often used for handpainted designs as it provides the ideal canvas for storytelling, allowing colors to truly come to life.

Tuscany: A region in central Italy, Tuscany is known for its landscapes, history, craftsmanship, and influence on culture. The birthplace of the Renaissance, Tuscany is often called the art palace of Italy, and many of the world's greatest works of art come from this region.

Alessandro Taddei: Alessandro was born in Empoli, Italy in 1960. He began his work in ceramics over 30 years ago, learning from local craftsmen throughout Tuscany while attending the Montelupo School for Ceramics. He has worked next to some of the best ceramic maestros in the world, learning the many secrets that are essential to mastering the art of ceramics. Throughout the years, Alessandro has had the opportunity to design for some of the best retailers and importers throughout the world, including VIETRI. He loves art, traveling, and photography, and has won a number of national awards for his paintings and photos. With ease and artistic passion, Alessandro makes the white clay surface his canvas.
