Ceramic egg 119.00

Ceramic egg
Description Additional Information

This ceramic egg has been entirely handmade by the artist Irma Guidorossi in her pottery studio Corte dei Gonzaga in Mantova, Italy.


She uses a traditional method called Sgraffito or Sgraffio which was very popular in the region during the Renaissance: a layer of white clay is applied on the raw piece and the decoration is “scratched” on this thick surface (engobe) before the first firing. Then the piece is hand painted in the same patterns that made this pottery so very famous a few centuries ago.


Irma’s eggs are available in different sizes and patterns. You can mix and match them to create unique decoration accents and memorable gifts!
