Description

Andrew the Potter is a Fontanini Nativity Scene 5 inch scale figure. 75504 Fontanini Nativity figures are made in Italy and are richly detailed and hand-painted in an old-world palette for authenticity and enduring beauty. The figures are handcrafted from a specially formatted polymer that is resistant to chipping and breaking.

The Fontanini Nativity story of Andrew: Working with his father, Andrew was learning every aspect of making finely decorated pottery - the art of shaping the clay on a wheel, of drawing intricate shapes and designs, and mixing paints and pigments into vibrant colors to complete the work. He toiled painstakingly to use all of these newly-learned talents to create his very first pitcher, and proudly put the pitcher on the shelf to dry. When he got the pitcher the next day to show his father, he was shocked, then angry - the bright colors he had used had dulled, the finish was splotchy and bubbled. He wanted to smash the pitcher on the floor. His father spoke to him gently, and urged him not to be discouraged; he would review the lessons he had taught the boy, and Andrew could try again, just doing his best, and leaving the results in the hands of another. The second result was perfect - and Andrew thanks his father for his lesson in the virtues of patience.
