Each sunflower is made of Capodimonte porcelain: the finest of Italian artistic pottery, with a history beginning in Naples in 1738. In that year, artists used clays of pure white color and the finest grain brought in from Calabria to create highly detailed objects rivaling the best of other European courts. Almost 300 years later, each piece is still individually handcrafted in the most meticulous detail. Each sunflower of Capodimonte porcelain measures 7.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Handcrafted from the heart and hands of the artisan exclusively for Uno Alla Volta.
