I came across them a few years ago in Málaga, Spain. And I keep seeing them there whenever I go. But Teste di Moro vases (decor) originates from Caltagirone, Sicily, Italy. For me it was love at first sight – they made a real WOW-impression. Then I didn’t know what I know now, that they are made from majolica ceramic. I think it runs in my family to love majolica, how did it not see this?

In a recent post I mentioned the idea of future heritage. I think that concept could be applied in this context. The company writes on their website that
“We focus on the local handcrafted productions and select unique items representing the history of Caltagirone majolica, the artistic and cultural values of which are recognized worldwide. Constantly attached to the traditions, we bring an artistic touch and a new design to our items, thereby making them exclusive and matchless.”
Such a fabulous job they are doing. Keep on going. And if you are lucky enough to have one in your possession. Work that greenery!
