BONTEMPO CERAMICHE DAL 1862

Every strong company has a long tradition. Every Italian company has a family tradition. My name is Amato Bontempo and I am a ceramic artist whose company has a great family story. My great-grandfather, Lorenzo Bontempo (1838-1921), opened one of the oldest bottega (workshop) in the small village of Rapino (Chieti - Italy). When he died, my grandfather Giuseppe (1868-1942) inherited the workshop and all the ceramic knowledge. His productive activity increased reaching the highest quality standards. After my grandfather’s death, my father Andrea (1905-1996) decided to continue our family tradition with great dedication. In 1975 I began my artistic job and in 1996 I started to lead our company. I strongly continue to handmade high-quality products always preserving the old ceramic tradition of Abruzzo and the name of my family.

BonTempo Ceramiche dal 1862 continues the old ceramic tradition of the village of Rapino (Chieti - Italy) painting the typical and rustic decorative themes as “fioraccio”, “il gallo”, “uccelli e tronchi”, “rosaspinosa”. In my workshop we preserve the ceramic tradition without forgetting the modern societal changes and tastes.

From 1862 until today the main aim of my family has been showing the world the ceramic and artistic tradition of my beloved land: Abruzzo. Since 1975 I have been creating unique and priceless products making my clients happy. The best side of my wonderful job? When I hand paint every item, I realise I am not alone but with my ancestors. The lasting touch of my great-grandfather, grandfather, father and mine. An entire family that has never betrayed its secular tradition.


My artistic creations are a great act of LOVE for you!
