Bice lives in Caltagirone, and has a large garden and an ornate house.
She spends long afternoons under the lemon trees and waits patiently for the right time to pick them.
She uses its leaves to weave spells and its succulent fruits to prepare a delicate marmalade whose flavour seduces all who taste it.
She doesn’t like making too many plans for the future, but she always lays the table for two in the hope that a grand love will one day come knocking at her door.
The Bice Moor’s head vase is available in three sizes: 17 cm, 27 cm and 38 cm.
The process of creating a Bice Moor’s head vase involves two firings in a kiln.
The first lasts thirty-six hours at a temperature of about 980°C.
After this, the piece is slowly cooled and then immersed in tanks containing the enamel which will give the surface of the object its distinctive, eternally glossy appearance.
Once it has dried, the head is decorated by hand by our master craftsmen and then given a second firing to glaze the enamel.
This takes about thirty-six hours at a temperature of 920°C.
Next, the decorations in gold are applied and the piece is fired for a third time to fix them.
This phase lasts around 24 hours and takes place at temperature of 700°C.
IDEAS AND INSPIRATIONS
The Bice Moor’s head vase is perfect in the kitchen for holding your wooden spoons or a basil plant, or at the centre of the table filled with delicious, freshly-baked breadsticks.
Or even on your desk, full of coloured pencils, or on the bathroom sink, holding your toothbrushes.
It can contain small plants and flowers of all types.
A typical ingredient of Mediterranean cuisine, lemons are a symbol of loving loyalty and protection.
That’s why Bice is also the ideal gift for a person who is very dear to you.
CARE AND DETAILS
To clean the object, use a soft, damp, non-abrasive cloth.
Do not use chemical cleaners, as these may damage the glaze.
The product should be handled with care, making sure to avoid dropping it, knocking it against hard surfaces (as even the slightest bump can chip the surface) or anything else which might damage it.
– Always handle Moor’s heads with care, making sure not to put pressure on the crown or decorations.
– Hold the base with both hands when moving your Moor’s Head.
