Ubaldo Grazia, the BEST.
Dec. 2019
If in Deruta, among the zilion ceramic shops, you must visit Grazia Maioliche, owned by Dr. Ubaldo. You will find some of the most creative and exquisite ceramics, non only the classic Deruta designs but also redescovered Tiffany designs (the sardines), the Api, Raffaello, William Morri, etc. Not cheap, but reasonable. A MUST go shop, plus there is a the great Grazia museum.

Handcrafted Excellence!!
May 2019 • Friends
We wanted to visit the Grazia factory because of its known excellence. We were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed by Stefania who showed us around and carefully explained the artistic process. Dr. Ubaldo Grazia chatted with us and told us about the factory's history over the generations and centuries. The showrooms were filled with beautiful hand-crafted ceramics. An unparalleled artistic experience that I will remember each time I look at the gorgeous maiolica pieces I acquired there. This is the place!

Beautiful ceramics, friendly staff
May 2019 • Friends
One of our stops with our small group tour, in and around Tuscany, was Grazia Maioliche in Deruta. Ubaldo the patriarch was very charming and personable. He led us on a most interesting tour where we observed various stages of the hand produced process. Watching the artists hand paint the pieces was a real treat.
The small museum on site containes pieces representing the 500 years the company has been in existence and celebrates its rich history.
After viewing the process and quality we decided to purchase a complete set of dishes as well as individual pieces for family and friends. The showroom is roomy and organized. Chiara, Ubaldo’s daughter, was very personable and helpful with the selection process. There was absolutely no sales pressure!
If you want the true original, not the low quality knock offs sold in many ceramics stores, this is your place!

Fabulous store in Deruta

Forget the others, and don't buy in the historical center (way too expensive). This is the place to get your maioliche!

Breathtaking Artistic Experience
Sep. 2017 • Couples
You wouldn't think going to a store would be an experience, nor would you expect a showroom to take your breath away. I'm not one for shopping or fancy dishes but stopped in to Grazia Maioliche to purchase a souvenir piece and ended up purchasing an entire set. The staff was delightful and patient because there are so many selections to make. Once the purchase was made, we were taken on a tour of the factory which isnt really a factory in the grand scale, more of a delightful workshop. If you are lucky, the patriarch will be on site and give you a tour himself!! You also get to see all of the things they don't show on line. Need a table with inlay majollica? Mirror frame of inlay majollica? They have a lot to see and it is all stunning. To be clear, you are not just buying a set of dishes or whatnot, this is art. Hand crafted, hours to create, historical, art. It is worth every penny or worth the visit even if you don't purchase (you do not get a tour if you don't purchase, fair enough, its a working business, not a museum). And if you are shipping it home, wait until you see how clever they package your order! I cannot recommend this place enough, an all around wonderful experience.

A beautiful factory and beautiful work.. but higher prices
Jun. 2018 • Friends
This is definitely one of the finest ceramics factories in the area, and the English-language competence of the staff makes it a good stop for English-speakers who want to know more. If you want to buy "high art" pieces (which always have high prices), then this is an excellent stop for you. However, if you just want to pick up a Deruta-style plate or cup, then you can get the same stuff across the street for a much lower price. So, come here to learn and if you want to buy high-end product; but if you just want to pick up some basic simple Deruta ceramics, the other options along the road are more economical.

Stopped in several but they are tops..

You know they are the ones who do it right. Watch their videos on You Tube on how long their family has been doing this. They take the dirt right from the quarry close by and make the product. They painstakingly paint each piece. It is a must shop when in the area of Umbria.

A spectacular find!!
Jun. 2016 • Couples
We had seen colorful Italian pottery in various places during our Italian trip but none of it was terribly inspiring - a lot of color but not very attractive. When we were in Umbria we decided to visit Deruta, the home of Majolica pottery. We didn't expect much given what we had already seen. We drove into town and stopped at the first interesting looking pottery building we came to, which just so happened to be Grazia Majolica. We were met at the door by Chiara, the owner's daughter, and the next two hours was an amazing experience. The quality, variety, and artistry of the pottery was stunning, unlike anything we had seen elsewhere. Chiara took us on a tour of the entire facility and we saw how they make their pottery, right down to the intricate and delicate job of painting it. She also introduced us to her father and we had a very enjoyable chat. They both speak excellent English. We ended up purchasing several items while there and Chiara carefully wrapped them for us to carry throughout the rest of Italy and back to the US. We have since purchased additional items via their website. After leaving their facility we decided to tour several other manufacturer's facilities to see what else we may have missed. What we saw was the same kind of pottery we had been seeing throughout Italy - very colorful yet uninspiring. Grazia Majolica stands head and shoulders above any other manufacturer we saw. Their pottery borders on art!!! We highly recommend a visit to their facility in Deruta if in the area. If not, look at their website - we are sure you will be impressed.

Not to be missed.
May 2017 • Couples
If in Deruta you cannot miss Grazia Maioliche, the oldest artisanal Majolica makers in Deruta. Their work, supervised by Ubaldo Grazia his extraordinary. The designs from classic to modern are unique, as the variety of objects. DO NOT miss it.
