Italian ceramic wall plate, handmade and hand-decorated with the dry cord technique characterised by embossed glazes.

The elaborate flower placed at the center of the plate with surrounding floral elements represent the birth, the beginning of the new blooming season.
All the objects part of the brand “Fenice” are characterized by decorations with embossed glazes, which follow the rules of the traditional decorating technique ”cuerda seca” of Hispanic – Moorish origins. The name of the decoration derives from the use of a cord soaked in grease with which the desired design was created on a tile and then, the blank spaces were filled with colorful glazes. This technique allows to obtain embossed chromatic effects with vibrant colours and is more suitable to flat surfaces but it is not impossible to use it on curved objects. The dry cord decoration technique is still not widespread in Italy. In Abruzzo, the dry cord technique is performed by Marta Liberati, one of the first ceramists working with this technique in our region.
The careful details together with the touching colour matching, make the dry cord ceramic plate a unique object with a high artistic depth. The plate is equipped with a metal hook and is ready to be hung on the wall. When purchasing the object, a Guarantee Certificate will be attached to prove the craftsmanship of the work.
