BLACK MAN HEAD VASE (Large)
Original ceramic Giacomo Alessi, produced in Caltagirone (CT), Italy.
These Heads are the quintessence of Maestro Giacomo Alessi’s artistic production and expert craftsmanship. The anthropomorphic vases express the rich history and traditions of Sicily, which has always been a melting pot of different people and cultures.
Each Giacomo Alessi ceramic is a unique piece, entirely made and decorated by hand, so the piece you receive at home may be dissimilar in some minor aspect from what you see in this photograph. It is what makes them special, we are sure you will understand and appreciate.
The Alessi family has been practicing ceramic arts for years and works to maintain the traditional crafts of their native Caltagirone, Italy. Their workshop uses time-honored techniques and, apart from lathes, no machinery to speak of – only the expert hands of Giacomo Alessi himself.
This lack of mechanization means that each and every piece from Ceramiche Alessi is unique and individual, with its own idiosyncrasies. Once formed, pieces are fired twice – even thrice, in some cases – to ensure longevity and versatility in use.
Handmade in accordance to local traditions, Ceramiche Alessi pieces will bring color, vibrancy and a touch of the unique to any home.
