Deruta Ceramic Christmas Ball - LUSTER PEN - 60 mm
The ancient technique of metallic reflections in the third firing, called del Lustro, is used here with peacock feathers recreating the sixteenth-century atmosphere of glazed ceramics.
Difficult to carry out technically, this decoration requires many steps and three firings to give life to the iridescent color.
Completely hand painted, it is produced in a very limited number of copies
The artisan firm F.lli Marcucci has been producing majolica and artistic ceramics for three generations.
The tradition is kept alive thanks to the commitment of the members of the family who pass on the art of working ceramics strictly by hand using high quality raw materials
The path followed by the Marcuccis, given the impossibility of producing large quantities by themselves, is that of a quality product, well cared for down to the smallest detail, right from its creation, in limited editions or in small productions.
