About Us

Kita Ceramics & Glassware has been in business since 2001. We are a small family owned business specializing in hand made glass and pottery. The two art forms have a historical tradition. Our glass is imported from Murano, Italy, an island known for producing glass ware since the 1400's. Our pottery is imported from Kyoto, Japan, an ancient city rich in history, culture, and artisan crafts.

We admire and take great pride, for there is a story behind each of our pieces.
