Italian Pottery Outlet
Santa Barbara, California, United States
The Italian Pottery Outlet got its start in 1982, when Ben Spalluto and his wife, Carol, discovered a shared love of Italian ceramics while visiting family in Italy. In the following years, while learning the retail market and finding suppliers in Italy, they hoped that their children could be involved sometime in the future. In 1996, daughter Julie joined the business, followed soon after by her sister, Adele. A few years ago, the Spalluto’s son, Joe, also joined the business. We launched our website in 1998.
Today, The Italian Pottery Outlet is your source for the finest Italian pottery at discounted prices. As a wholesale distributor we are able to buy in volume and offer our imports to you at 30% off regular retail. Our family scours the Italian countryside each year for the most interesting designs and patterns, and we proudly bring these delights to you.
