About The Artist:

Maiolica is a technique developed in Italy in the 14th century. A terracotta body is covered by a glaze which includes tin oxide to give an opaque white ground. This technique was originally used to imitate Chinese porcelain before the secret of the method of making porcelain was discovered. During the 15th and 16th centuries this opaque white ground then allowed the Italian potters to produced extravagant painted Renaissance style designs in the manner of the great artists of the day. These pieces have become extremely collectable and so have been reproduced since the latter part of the 19th century. This vase was made in the 20th century, made in imitation of storage jars from the 16th and 17th centuries.
