Mothers Day Majolica

With Mother's Day just a few days away, we were thinking about what would be appropriate gifts for the occasion. The first thing that comes to mind is flowers!

In the world of pottery few things are more commonly found decorating pottery than flowers. Majolica with its bright colors is particularly adept at reproducing these marvels of nature. So we present a garden of majolica flowers.
