Raphaelesque: just made an amphora and a tray

31 January 2017

We have just completed two pieces meticulously decorated in the style Raffaellesco, one of the jewels of our production flowers.

anfora e vassoio raffaellesco, ceramica di Faenza pottery

The Raffaellesco Faenza is inspired by the pictorial style of Raffaello Sanzio, in particular for the purity of the human figures and for landscaping with grotesque, also known as Raphael (always inspired by the designs adopted by Raphael).

Our Raphaelesque is reworked in a very personal way by Silvagni workshop. It requires great precision and commitment to achieve very definite designs, in some cases miniaturized, such as rural scene on the back of the amphora.

Great Raphaelesque tray with handles

The large tray with handles – 49 cm x 30.5 cm, height 5 cm – has at its center a nice romantic scene, where you can see the precision and finesse of the decoration. Even the contour elements are very minute designs: floral patterns and grotesque. Ideal as a centerpiece: placed in a nice wooden table can enhance the entire environment.

Raphaelesque amphora with a scene inspired by Watteau

The amphora – height 48 cm, width 27 cm from handle to handle – is characterized by the central scene inspired by the painting “The Dance (Iris)” by Antoine Watteau, and is embellished with a side of very minute decorations. On the back, in the center and surrounded by grotesques, a typical rural scene of the Faenza Apennines. Worth mentioning the originality of the great amphora handles, made by our turner only for La Vecchia Faenza.
