Description

Angel for the Nativity measures 3-1/2" H x 2-1/4" W. Rinconada Nativity figure is hand made in Uruguay and is carefully hand-carved and detailed in fine grain earthenware ceramic material. After initial kiln firing, decoration continues with the hand application of colored slips and enamel glazes used to accent and highlight individual design characteristics. Each enamel glaze must be re-fired individually in order to preserve its distinctive coloration.

Internationally known for its unique personality, character and originality, the Rinconada Nativity Scene is truly one of the finest examples of contemporary ceramic design. Each piece of this nativity scene began with a master design. From this master design ceramic is molded and then hand carved to add texture, detail and personality. When the carving is finished the piece is ready for its first kiln firing. The figures are then hand painted with a colorful variety of ceramic slips and bright enamel glazes. When the hand painting is completed each figurine once again needs to be fired in the kiln. Because colors fire at different temperatures, many firings are required. Some designs may be fired up to six times to achieve the desired result. The application of 18 karat gold and platinum mark the final step in the design process. These precious metals are used not only to accent the personality of the figurines, but to transform the collection into the brightly colored jewels in the world of hand crafted ceramic design. Artesania Rinconada figurines are carefully hand-carved and detailed in fine grain earthenware ceramic material. After initial kiln firing, decoration continues with the hand application of colored slips and enamel glazes used to accent and highlight individual design characteristics. Each enamel glaze must be re-fired individually in order to preserve its distinctive coloration. The Rinconada Nativity figures are hand made in Uruguay.

What is the Rinconada style? The development of the Rinconada style was strongly influenced by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro; three Spanish artists whose work dominated Spanish art in the first half of the 20th century.
