Ceramic plate Fenice D40
Ceramic plate Fenice, embossed glazes, diameter 70 cm.
The ceramic wall plate Fenice, diameter 40 cm, is handmade and hand-decorated with the “dry cord” technique characterised by embossed glazes. Every phase of the plate making, from the moulding to the final decoration, followed the best artisanal tradition of the Italian ceramic making.
All the objects part of the line “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 on flat surfaces, while curve surfaces of unrefined ceramics are more difficult to decorate. 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 ceramic plate Fenice a unique object with a high artistic depth. When purchasing the object, a Guarantee Certificate will be attached to prove the craftsmanship of the work.
