Casa Alfarera is a stoneware workshop located in the Colonial City of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It was founded in 2013 by ceramist and art historian Ysabela Molini and businessman Amadeo Anselin. The workshop comprises a team of artisans who have been in the trade for over thirty years and managers and operators who facilitate serial artisanal production. 


We produce utilitarian ceramics in series. We specialize in planters, lighting, vases, and ceramic furniture. Our clients include architects, interior designers, landscape architects, and end clients.

We prospect most of our raw materials in the Dominican Republic and process them in our workshop in the Colonial City of Santo Domingo. An important part of our process is analyzing the characteristics of our prospected minerals and understanding the behavior of our clay bodies. Our glaze repertory includes recipes of our creation and recipes adopted from ceramic scholars and commercial glazes. Our wares are thrown on the potter's wheel, hand built, and mold pressed. Our firing temperatures reach 1,250 degrees Celsius."
