- Product Details
A satisfied cat sporting it’s freshly caught meal- a huge tasty fish. Agalis Manessi’s charming 'Maiolica' ceramic cat ornaments have been described as a rich fusion of the observed and imagined. Inspired by Fauvist paintings, Agalis paints her terracotta pieces with a variety of metal oxides to create the multi-hued tones.
About Agalis Manessi
Agalis Manessi creates a range of ceramics in the rich historical medium of ‘Maiolica’ – a ceramic process developed over five hundred years ago. The red terracotta clay is dipped in an earthenware glaze into which tin oxide has been added to create a white opaque glossy surface when fired. Before firing, the glaze is painted with a range of metal oxides that are absorbed like fresco, brilliantly preserving the colours. Agalis creates whimsical ceramic creatures, striving for a poetic simplicity. The modelled animals and figures take on an animated nature, communicating silently yet eloquently some kind of message to the viewer.
