MAJOLICA RENAISSANCE Collection

 

 

The Majolica Renaissance Collection is the most sophisticated majolica-ware from Tuscany and it is noted for its stylized portrait of heads and figures as shown in our all new Majolica Renaissance Collection.

In the renaissance era, these masterfully hand painted vessels, were exchanged as gifts among the noble families as they were often commissioned to depict a family member and also exchanged in special occasions between lovers for wedding or anniversary occasions.

These Majolica pieces are true classic from Montelupo (Tuscany) and an Artistica’s exclusive, created using the now rare technique called 'Ingobbio'. Prior to first firing, a glaze obtained from a clay of different color is applied only on the exterior part of the object.
This ancient Tuscan process produces an authentic 'Old World' look, and adds significant body to the colors.
You can actually feel the consistent (almost raised) body of the painting when gently passing your hand over decorated parts.
Due to the complexity of both preparation and painting, this technique is now used by very few artisans, which makes these items very hard to find.
