Cultural Description / Significance: Rustic Pottery makers were traditionally a family-based concern. Potter's started work at about 8 years of age. Young boys prepared the clay that men had excavated, while women were responsible for decorating the pots and applying the glazes. Unique in style and tradition, these ceramic sculptures are hand prepared, using a secret mix of clay ingredients, mixing several different colored paints in order to achieve one true color, then glazed inside and out, finally placed in a traditional wood burning kiln at a specific temperature and precise time in order to achieve a perfect masterpiece. These methods and techniques are original, and have been passed down through generations of Italian artisan families ($205 at Cultural Elements; also available in yellow)
