Moorhen vase

The artefact

The stylised hen, a distinctive element of local iconography, acquires new expressiveness in the interpretation offered by the artist in this series of ceramic vessels,  lathe-made and finished with accurate plastic additions. Available in different variants of shapes and decorations, the pots are made with procedures and technical solutions of elaborate finishing to obtain an intentionally worn effect, recalling majolica ceramics.
