Cockerels

The artefact

The sophisticated yellow and green shades, a typical element of traditional Oristano pottery, are the main feature of the stylised hand-crafted and decorated cockerel. Crafted with a slip technique, alternated with thick glazed sections, it features sophisticated and diverse decorative effects, underlining the expressive momentum and skilled craftsmanship of each artifact. The piece is available also in a smooth white or black glaze.
