This bowl contrasts a calming ginkgo design paired with vibrant yellow and ochre glazes. Intricate fan-shaped leaves are sculpted onto each hand-thrown piece. (5.9"Hx16.9"D) Fortunata's Ginkgo collection was inspired by the oriental ginkgo tree, symbol of longevity, resilience and peace. The graceful fan shaped leaves are skillfully sculpted onto each piece and then hand painted with a deep ochre glaze to create a distinct object of sophisticated beauty for discriminating tastes.
To make these ceramics, clay is thrown and shaped by hand on the potter's wheel, then glazed in distressed high gloss ochre-yellow, leaving portions of the terracotta bases and interiors exposed for textural contrast. For decorative use only.
ABOUT FORTUNATA POTTERY: Each Fortunata piece captures the tradition and charm of the ancient Tuscan workshops where the ceramics are skillfully hand thrown using a unique mixture of select clays. Every Fortunata piece is a unique combination of creative design and traditional skills. These pieces are imported directly from Italy.
*Evidence of handcrafted work includes the slight color and size variations making the pieces truly one-of-a-kind and highly collectable. Perhaps the most important feature of the Fortunata collection is the unique, heavily distressed, antique look created by uneven glazing.
