Torrita Di Siena is the ancient (1300 AD) Tuscan locale for this tiny, family-owned ceramics factory. They specialize in a technique known as ceramic relief, in which the design is sketched to create a resist within which the various colors of glaze are contained. The result is a colorful, mosaic effect which works particularly well with the artists’ sunny, happy themes! This handmade and hand painted Italian ceramic cross features village scene with houses and trees and friendly celestial figures overhead. What a lovely gift or addition to your own collection.
