Franda panel

The artefact

Decorative ceramic element with motifs inspired by the embroidery of traditional Sardinian dresses. The shape evokes sa franda, a decorated apron that was part of the women's apparel, that embroiderers embellished using their technical and composition skill. A closer look the decoration highlights its preciousness. The motifs, engraved and painted in several baking sessions, display brilliant enamels on opaque surfaces, a synthesis of the artist’s language skills, technical expertise and evocative reminders of different craft traditions blended with each other.
