For over 30 years, Artesa ceramics have been manufactured in the city of Cuenca - the ceramics capital of Ecuador. Although it is the smallest country in the Andean highlands of South America, Ecuador boasts a wide array of coastlines, rainforests, mountains, and rich Inca heritage on which the colorful and unique designs are based.
All Artesa ceramics are lead and cadmium free and the dinnerware is dishwasher and microwave safe. High firing temperatures give the pieces greater strength and resistence to chipping while the detailed hand-painting gives each piece its originality.
Lakeside Imports, LLC has been importing and selling Artesa ceramics for over 10 years after a vacation in Ecuador where the dinnerware was first seen. Our warehouse is located near Houston, Texas and we ship via FedEx and U.S. Mail all over the world.
