Artistica features only genuine Italian hand painted ceramics, masterfully hand decorated by old school artists. The Artistica website describes the Ingobbio technique, which this seems to be made using this technique. Ingobbio is the ancient Tuscan process that gives such an authentic Old World look, while adding a much greater body to the colors. You can feel the consistent almost raised body of the painting when gently passing your and over the decorated parts.
Due to the complexity of both preparation and painting, this technique is now used by very few artisans, which makes these items very hard to find. Because each piece is individually crafted, you will notice slight variations in color and size. Furthermore, occasionally there may be paint smudges, fingerprints, and looseness of lids.
These variances should not be considered as imperfections, but as evidence of fine, hand-crafted work. Condition - The pot looks great with no major visible flaws aside from manufacturing and hand-crafted variances. The lip of the jar has what appears to be a chip (it's a dip and a slightly lighter color) however it has a glaze over it so seems that it was chipped in the manufacturing process and glazed over. The lid has two chips and two tiny white spots that look like they were bubbles in the paint. The piece has no cracks or crazing.The Artistica website no longer carries this piece so it must be Retired.
