This ceramic candle holder is rich in shadings created by mixing different types of earthenware, with crackle glazed elements and double-fired. Mamuthone mask, neolithic ship bas-relief, a typical Sardinian lapwing, polished domes frequent in ancient buildings of Sardinia and stone details add traditional accents to the sculpture.
An opening on the bottom of the sculpture permits to insert a tea light that will create an illumination effect.
Our Mediterranean-style houses take inspiration from the architecture of Michele Busiri Vici, called by Prince Karim Aga Khan IV to design Porto Cervo at the beginning of the 1960s. Their forms, slightly angular, rounded here and there, remind seashells; white colouring evokes bright Sardinian sands. Clay roofing tiles, circular windows and arch terraces along with any tiny particular reflect the marine style, a way of living the summer. Each house is handcrafted, unique and different from the others, protected by a natural box and authenticated by the author's signature.
