Ceramic decorative SQUARED PLATE in Byzantine style completely handpainted. High quality product made in the heart of Italy. The elaboration of the pieces is entirely handmade. To obtain Byzantine decoration, the first step is the creation of clay forms, which is made with a mold or hand-modeled with a particular tool called "Tornio". The "Foggiatore" is the one who works on this instrument and gives harmonious and original forms. The next step is the decoration of the clay product through the technique of "Graffitura": the object is engraved by hand using a thick-pointed needle, making the characteristic stitches of the piece. Once the pieces are molded, it is baked at 1070ºC in a special oven. After the first firing, the product is decorated for the first time with a brush with all colors except gold, then it is recoated for the second time at 1000ºC and then it is enriched with dissolved liquid gold, with particules resins, which during the third and last firing of 720ºC are burned and leaving only 24 carat gold on the surface.
