Our new Caltagirone Collection features the traditional Moorish Heads of Sicily also know as Pot Heads, fancy plant pots adorned with regional fruits such as lemons and pomegranates and Baroque bass relief motifs.
These Moorish Heads were traditionally placed atop gateposts or in outdoor gardens but nowadays they are mostly used as interior decorating pieces and became unique ''conversation pieces''.
When the Moors invaded Sicily from North Africa in the 11th century, they built ceramics workshops all over the island and taught the Sicilians to make brightly colored majolica, an art form which gradually spread throughout Sicily.
These Pot Heads, although originated from Palermo, flourished in the renowned ceramic town of Caltagirone near Catania becoming their most traditional item.
Caltagirone is famed for its Sicilian ceramics and a key reason for the popularity is the quality of the Sicilian clay, freshly mined from Sicilian valleys and mountains that contain a mixture of unique silicates that give the material its special properties.
