"San Michele di Alghero" lamp base

The artefact

The elegant shape and the original polychrome lozenges pattern of the lamp base are inspired by and reflect the dome of the Church of San Michele, richly decorated with colored tiles and is symbol of the city of Alghero. Hand-crafted in glazed ceramic, it is part of the A regola d'arte collection in which the potters merge their compositional skills with the elaborate architectural elements of the most beautiful churches of Sardinia. The artifact was created as a unique piece, with accurate and always different colour combinations.
