Since medieval times, the lion has been the symbol of Florence, a city renowned for its art and museums. The motif of our Museo collection is the Firenze lion, displayed in a rich ivory finish befitting a rich cultural history. It is formed by proud artisans of modern Florence who throw clay on a potter's wheel, hand sculpt decorative images like our Museo lion and then glaze by hand each item in our high-gloss glaze to present your Museo piece, brought to you from Italy by Fortunata.
Clay is thrown and shaped by hand on the potter's wheel, then partially glazed in distressed in ivory, leaving portions of the terracotta bases and interiors exposed for textural contrast. For decorative use only.
