Gallinella - Moorhen

The artefact

These hand-crafted and decorated pots are made of many-coloured glazed ceramic. The pot is called gallinella, being a formal synthesis of the stylized fowl, shaped to make pouring easier. The balanced combination of tradition and contemporary expression is emphasised in the collection, featuring different sizes and single-colour pieces, with original and sophisticated combinations.
