Details

Handcrafted from ceramic, this beautiful Honduran sculpture of a messenger pigeon is covered with spiral motifs in crackled alabaster and coal black. Alessandra Foletti designs the sculpture, handcrafted using the ancient pottery burnishing technique, where a flat stone is used to rub the surface to a sheen. During firing, a resist technique similar to batik is used, protecting the natural brown color of the clay while the uncovered parts of the surface achieve a black finish.

Because the resist material is applied by hand, no two sculptures are ever identical, making this a unique work of ceramic art.
