ARTISTIC REPRODUCTION N. 16 CUP IMPASTO
This is an artistic reproduction in terracotta of a bowl in impasto. This reproduction is made entirely by hand, turned and aged by local artists. To obtain this result, the local master potters had to make many attempts to reproduce these vases.
They are also artificially patinated by hand to give the object an "antique" effect, even if the decorations imitate the originals of the vases found in the Etruscan tombs of Cerveteri and other Etruscan necropolises, they are the result of the work and ingenuity of every master potter, and each work is unique and different from the other, they may seem similar but they are not.
The cup is a vessel used to drink wine taken from the craters. A widespread form since the earliest times, it is called impasto because they were not decorated and the vase took on the color of clay after firing. These vases are unmistakable due to the clay with which they were made, in fact this clay once cooked takes on a very brown color, different from other Greek vases which after cooking are more red in color.
This COPPA di IMPASTO reproduction is 11cm tall, with a 10cm foot and a 14.2cm edge, with handmade artificial patination, like everything else, reference number 16
This is a unique piece, entirely turned, graffitied, baked and patinated by hand.
