Bring home a masterpiece with the ‘I Lunghi’ Clay Head Vase by ceramic artist Patrizia Italiano.

Handmade in Sicily, Patrizia draws inspiration from the magical island of Filicudi, where she creates these whimsical, colourful and expressive creations. Her work pays ode to the island’s colours, smells, landscapes and sunsets; its old, stone-paved paths, dry-stone walls, and green-blue sea.

“I Lunghi symbolises the guests in Sicily, who visit from near and far, bringing home warm wishes to their loved ones. I Lunghi wears pinecones around her throne, a Sicilian symbol and message for luck and prosperity. In Sicily, this tradition is so loved that ceramic pine cones are present in almost every home”.

Each piece is lovingly hand-crafted with time-honoured traditions and embodies elements of nature and everyday life in Sicily, reinterpreted her way.
