Red warrior

The artefact

The figure of the warrior on horseback, distinctive of Franco Scassellati’s artistic production, is inspired by the archaic Nuragic culture, expressed with dynamic style and refined sculptural technique. Designed as a unique artefact by experimenting with clay and enamels created by this ceramist, it is fired with customised high-firing (a gran fuoco) reduction procedures that result in striking colour effects.
