Etruscan – Air Spirit

 

 

This design comes from the Etruscan civilization, which predates the roman civilization in Italy. An air spirit sits in the centre flanked by two birds, according to the source of this image. However, I believe to be a water spirit as those birds look a lot more like fish to me.

Comes in a variety of washes, or can be glazed.

Tuscan Witch – Wall Plaque

Hand sculpted wall plaque with an oxide wash over white stoneware.

This folksy witch was reproduced from the Tuscan Witch image of Italian folklore.

The design was hand-carved into terra cotta clay from drawings. A plaster mold was made from the master tile. From there, either terra cotta or stoneware clay is pressed into the mold, creating a duplicate, which is then touched up. After drying, the tile is fired in a kiln. It may then be hand-painted with acrylic paints and varnish, or glazed and refired (up to 3 times), or simply given a colored wash and refired. (Add $10.00 for hand painting.)

This piece was a true labour of love. The tile measures 5-1/4″ in diameter, and hangs on the wall.
