Item N02a: 7"x7" Madonna with child

This beautiful Della Robbia TERRA COTTA plaque is hand made in Italy.
It has two holes on the top border to be hanged.
It can be placed outdoors in the garden or in the home for decoration (in Italy you actually see these pieces outdoors, cemented to the wall, as a benediction to the house, since people have them blessed).

What is terra cotta?
Terra cotta is a hard semi fired waterproof ceramic clay used in pottery and building construction. The name is Italian for "baked earth". Our terra cotta pieces are hand made with the well know clay from Montelupo (Florence, Italy). The characteristics of this fine and excellent clay are very unique: its chemical composition in fact makes it very hard and long lasting. Also the richness of mineral salts, after being baked, makes its unique typical color of a red-pinkish tone, never homogeneous. It is called Galestro clay. The look of terra cotta becomes more beautiful with time, getting a layer of salts and other agents and also from the dust in general. That is why durability for an object made of terra cotta is important and the excellent quality of the Galestro clay guarantees it. In Italy, some people actually, accelerate the aging process of the object made of terracotta by keeping the surfaces of the pottery always humid. An object made with a good quality clay will last for years... even centuries!!
