Ceramic Tile - Green Boar

Size: 20cm x 20cm. Thickness: 13mm approx.
These tiles are authentic Caltagirone ceramic artworks from the studio of renowned artisan, Giacomo Alessi. As they are hand-painted, each tile will be unique.

Description

These tiles are suitable for indoor or outdoor application.

The patterns and decorations reflect the influence of the Roman, Arab, Spanish and Norman cultures who have all occupied Sicily over the centuries. Alessi authentically reproduces these ancient designs in every detail including the distinctive mottling caused by early firing methods. 

Giacomo Alessi was born in 1955 in Caltagirone which is about a 40 minute drive south of Catania. In Italy it’s known as “The city of ceramics”, and the name itself – Caltagirone – derives from an Arabic word meaning the Castle or Fortress of the vases, as it has been a centre for pottery production since the 2nd century BC.
