THE I CARUSI COLLECTION

Our collection
of Moor’s heads

The I Carusi collection of brightly-coloured Moor’s heads was created in our workshops in Caltagirone, where each piece is transformed into a work of art.

The craftsmanship and sculptural skill that distinguish Maremoro allow us to model the clay by hand to create the superb, refined faces of our wonderful Moor’s heads.

The collection is a modern reinterpretation of historic Sicilian ceramics, expressed in linear shapes and bold colours.

The voluminous turban, elegant medallion and other details are depicted in a minimalist style.

The bright glazes include bold colours like Etna cherry, almond, rose quartz, Modica chocolate, Mediterranean blue, tangerine, island emerald and aubergine, and the turbans are decorated by hand with citrus fruit, leaves and flowers, making our Moor’s heads masterpieces of Sicilian craftsmanship.

The interaction of the glazes with the porous clay creates unique tones.

The “ I Carusi” Moor’s heads are 24 and 33 cm high.
