The tables and mirrors of Tuscan Designs are designed and crafted exclusively by Michael Kaplan in his workshop in Rockport, Massachusetts.

The tiles and all the ceramic pieces are themselves works of art, hand painted and signed by artists in Deruta, Siena, Montelupo, Orvieto and other towns in Tuscany and Umbria. They reflect the colors, patterns and landscapes of Italy. These artists have mastered their designs and techniques over many generations to produce these extraordinary pieces.

The unique blend of fine hardwoods and beautiful Italian ceramic tiles, combined with expert craftsmanship, make the tables and mirrors not only functional, but fine decorative showpieces in any setting.  Only the finest materials are used.  The woods are solid cherry, maple, and other hardwoods. The inlaid tile tops provide for a maintenance-free, stain resistant surface. The tables and mirrors are finished by hand with multiple coats of high end finishing varnishes.

Ceramic Notes

All of our ceramics are lead free and food safe, have met FDA standards and have been tested and approved for safe use. If an item is strictly for decorative use, it will be clearly marked.

Our products should not be used in conventional or microwave ovens. While you can wash our ceramics in a dishwasher on the light cycle, it is highly recommended that you wash these items by hand, since dishwashers could cause chipping and crazing of the surface of the pieces.

Since each ceramic piece is individually crafted and hand-painted, you may notice slight variations in color, size and design. Additionally, on occasion you might see paint smudges, brushstrokes, even light fingerprints.
You will also notice looseness of ceramic lids. All of these "variances" should not be considered defects. They are the result of fine work and artistry done completely by hand.
