Traditional, Seminara Ceramic Mask

$465.64per item

About

Ditto potters with Antonio Bonamico. The ceramic masks of Seminara are ostentatious and grotesque, with deliberately frightening features to scare away all malevolent beings or forces in order to protect the home. The masks are finished in enormous wood fired kilns, which adds an uncontrollable twist to the features and colors rendered by the artisan’s hands—the final touch in their fierce and imperfect beauty. The archaeological evidence suggests that the mask tradition probably originates in the costumes of the Magna Graecia theater. As a household object, the mask introduces concepts of constructed identities, performed roles, dramatic conflict, and supernatural intervention into the domestic sphere. Details: - Dimension: approximately 30 H x 28 W x 8 D cm - Material: 100% mediterranean terracotta clay - Technique: 100% handmade in Italy - Each handcrafted traditional Seminara mask is unique. The picture on an indicative basis. If you want a specific color (blue, green) please let us know ! - 14-days return policy. - In stock.

About The Maker

TRAME is a new homeware brand that explores new domestic landscapes across the Mediterranean. Each collection of homeware and accessories is inspired by a historical episode, reflects a cross-cultural journey and celebrates the exceptional know-how of Mediterranean craftsmen. By introducing contemporary designers to traditional craftsmen TRAME brings a fresh point of view to those who have spent generations refining artisan techniques and provides economic benefits for local communities, while helping to conserve our common cultural heritage. TRAME believes in encounters and co-creation. The first collection, “A voyage to Meknes”, is freely inspired by the story of Madame de Blois, King Louis XIV’s favorite daughter, and her imagined connection to Moroccan culture. The collection arises from the encounter of the designers Maddalena Casadei (IT), Maria Jeglinska (PO) and Julie Richoz (FR) with exceptional Moroccan ceramics and textile craftsmen.
