This handmade and hand painted Italian ceramic cross features village scene with houses and trees and a sunny celestial figure up above. What a lovely gift for your godmother! Or why not a bright addition to your own collection of religious art? Torrita Di Siena is the ancient Tuscan home for this small factory that is known for its ceramic art created in ceramic relief. This is a process in which the design is sketched to create a resist within which the various colors of glaze are contained. The result is a vari-colored mosaic look that emphasizes the artists’ jubilant themes!
