Mermaid Among Fish Silver Lustre Tile #2 - Matteo Salsano


An intriguing iridescence resulting from the use of chlorides, nitrates, and sulfates for the silver glazing distinguishes this poetic ceramic tile, handcrafted following an ancient Persian technique for lustreware items involving a second firing in a reduction kiln. It depicts a mermaid holding a starfish and swimming among a school of fish. The enchanting hues and reflections of this singular piece will not change over time.
