Because each piece in the Emilia Ceramics collection is handcrafted, no two are exactly the same and the occasional glaze variation or uneven surface is inevitable. Far from detracting from the piece's beauty, these imperfections are a reflection of the human hands that crafted it and add to its unique personality.
Borragine is Italian for Borage, an herb originating in Syria, but grown throughout the Mediterranean region, North Africa, and Iran. In the 14th and 15th centuries, a vase such as this was most likely used to keep the herb, which are still used in salads, soups, sauces, teas and as an ingredient in the traditional recipe for a Pimm’s Cup. The Rinascimentale design (Italian for Renaissance) is the most intricate of our Italian collection. When painting each piece, Stefano Bartoloni must pay extreme attention to the detail of the enamels and colors, making the figures of kings, noblewomen, saints and knights really stand out from the bight blue background. One of a kind.
