Potbellied jar

The artefact

Ancient majolicas inspire these lathe-crafted hand-decorated ceramic jars. The geometrical decorations, hand-crafted following the tin-glazed slip technique, undeline their different shapes and colours, marks and solid fields of colour. Special oxide and bee-wax finishes provide an ancient and worn touch to the object.
