Tuscan ND Dolfi 20" Decorative Bowl
The colors on this piece explode like fireworks. It is large enough to be used as a cachepot, but it would also make a stunning piece of decor in your home. The gold is 24 karat gold. It is applied by the method that is known as terza cottura, which roughly translates to "the third cooking." After the piece is cooked twice, as all Italian pottery, or maiolica, is, the artisan applies a solution that is 18% 24 karat gold and 82% solvents. The terza cottura is done at a low temperature in the kiln so that the solvents can evaporate, leaving behind a thin coat of pure 24 karat gold.
This ND Dolfi piece is 10" in height and 20" at its widest point. Measurements are approximate.
