Drawing inspiration from ceramic plates on support, I wished to create this collection, whose name derives from sports medallions, since these ones are similarly round and flat as my medallions. Actually, this collection reproduces a small version of our well know sicilian lava stone tables, but unlike them, whose use is meant to have dinner or something else, besides to furnish home, this set of medallions wish to simply embellish and get admiration.
The style shown through these works is basically Baroque , and colours tending towards sicilian spring, but not failing to use my favourite blue colour.
The lava stone was hand made using a machine-tool and took a lot of working hours, since no machinery exist to shape it.
The iron support was scrupolously hand made by a local blacksmith master using fire and hammer, in order to enhance and to sustain the handicraft work of my objects.
Measures: diameter 11,81 in inches / 30 cm
As each work made by Etnamadre also this collection is entirely hand made and scrupolously hand painted.
