Info & Disclaimer

This item is a work resulting from several artistic and crafting techniques applied to an antique object: as such imperfections and inhomogeneities are present, mostly due to uneven responses of the centuries-old earthenware to the firing process.
The entire process of firing, in order to fix the painting and its bright colours, is extremely tricky and requires a substantial mastery to reduce risks of breakages.
