''In Pursuit'' Italian Ceramic Horse Sculpture With 24k Gold Base

In Nove, Italy, Rita and her daughter Valentina use traditional techniques to handcraft this majestic running horse sculpture. Working with their own clay mixture, they create pristine white ceramic which they pour into an original mold that was made by Valentina over 15 years ago. After it has been fired, the base of each sculpture is then carefully cleaned with alcohol to ensure that any dust or particles are removed, as this may cause the sculpture to shatter during the final firing. After being cleaned, each base is glazed by hand with 24k gold for a look of luxe and grandeur before it is fired a second and final time at an extremely high temperature. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the hearts and hands of the artisans. Dimensions - Horse measures approximately 12 inches by 10 inches. Gold Base measures approximately 13 inches by 6 inches by 1 inch.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
