The majority of our ceramic pieces are replicas discovered in the Tuscany region of 16th century Italy. All pieces are made strictly by hand, and can take many days to complete; our Italian artists don't rush for anyone! The authentic finish is purposely manufactured using an exclusive formula utilizing sand, (We can't put the exact process into words, it's somewhat secret.) Many countries have tried to copy this particular look, but none have actually mastered the ancient Italian teqnique. All clay substances vary in quality, over the centuries, Italian artists have strived to use top quality grade 'A' clay for their work (The quality of clay is crucial to achieve a fine piece of finished ceramic.) The ceramic crests have been hand carved out of wood, then developed into a metal stamp in which the clay is then moulded, some of these family crests may be seen in various museums throughout Italy. We are very fortunate to posess some of these original crests.
