Beauty of the vases
The secret of its beauty derives from the use of asbolana, a mineral product of manganese alteration, which is precisely what gives the pieces the particular blue tint and its brightness and transparency. The texture of the body is the work of the skilled hands of the artisans, in addition to the amazing manufacturing technique, another factor that distinguishes the pieces and makes them so striking.
