Detailed description

Set of 2 ceramic figures "Owl Mother with Young One"

Folk art and elaborate handicrafts from Uruguay: It all began in 1972 with "Artesania Rinconada" ("corner art") in domestic living rooms. Inspired by master artists, the children of Spanish emigrants created ceramic figures that are now sought-after collector's items. The items are fired several times, decorated with materials such as enamel glaze, gold and platinum in elaborate handwork rich in colour.

The effort that goes into these colourful ceramics is enormous. In a first step, the still soft cast base form is decorated with fine ornamental details. The first firing hardens it, then it is painted - again by hand - and decorative enamel glazes are applied. After further kiln cycles, gilding and platinum elements are finally applied - creating individual testimonies of the close connection between Latin American folk art and handicraft at the highest level.

The owl is considered the bird of wisdom. Owl family made of ceramic with an enamel glaze and 18-carat gold plating. Size owl mother 10 x 7 x 7 cm (h/w/d). Size owlet 7 x 5,5 x 5,5 cm (h/w/d). Both owls are only available as a set.
