Iridescent gold warrior

The artefact

The regal figure of the warrior on horseback, in ceramic, enamelled so as to create fine chromatic effects and iridescent gold shine, distinctive of Franco Scassellati’s production, is inspired by the archaic Nuragic culture rendered with a dynamic style. 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 elegant colour effects.
