Candle Holder Synkeran


Size: Height 7.9" - 20 cm

Maximum 40 characters

Code: GH270/05
The design of this candle holder is aptly named Synkeran after the word syncretism, as it features a merging of decorative elements from the Sicilian tradition. A vibrant, vivid design from Ghenos, a fine artisan from Messina.

Descriptions & details

Sicily is an island of drama, beauty, and light, and so is its maiolica. Greek, Roman, Arab, Norman, and Spanish peoples (to mention but a few!) have conquered Sicily, blending their arts to create a unique, treasured heritage.

The artist

Ghenos is a small artisan studio in Messina, whose fame has spread far and wide. Their hand painted tiles, tableware, and home decor accents decorate villas in Capri, mansions in Paris and swimming pools in New Orleans. Inspired by traditional Sicilian pottery, with a penchant for Baroque, Ghenos designs are elaborate, rich in details and colors. Their knowledge of local art and crafts is reflected in the details of their work which is unique and very special.

Located in the North-East of Sicily, a stone's throw from the continent, Messina has been a center of pottery making for millennia. In the past few centuries, most artisans have moved to neighboring towns and villages, such as Taormina and Santo Stefano di Camastra, which certainly attract more tourists than Messina. However, the beauty and quality of the ceramics we found in Messina are extraordinary, just like the incredible talents of their makers.
