This set composed of a Sardinian house and tower is created using natural clay and finished with pastel color glazes upon double firing. Stone details and wavy forms add traditional accents typical to the north-eastern part of the island called Gallura, while the "crusted" effect recalls the charm of ancient facades.
The tower presents intense yellow coloring. The tiny house presents glass blue shades with a shiny glitter.
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.
Dimensions: height 8 cm (3 1/6") house and 12 cm ( 4 7/10") tower.
