Description

Onofrio lives in the Valley of the Temples.

He wakes up every morning surrounded by wonderful ruins lit by the dawn light and goes to sleep bathed in the delicate light of the moon.

By day he makes tasty jams from the prickly pears and dreams of moving to the Scala dei Turchi cliffs.

He has never been, but thinks he would be happy there too.

The Onofrio Moor’s head vase is available in three sizes: 17 cm, 27 cm and 38 cm.

THE PRODUCTION

The process of creating an Onofrio 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.

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.
