Gaspare lives in Marzamemi and sings an old song as he watches the the sea with hopeful eyes.
He has built a love nest from cactus pears, and with its fruits he makes wonderful cakes.
He is convinced that his life would be more cheerful if he had a sweet-natured companion and, as he dreams of her, he falls asleep under a vast starry sky.
The Gaspare Moor’s head vase is available in three sizes: 17 cm, 27 cm and 38 cm.
The process of creating a Gaspare 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.

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.
