This hair clip is a luminous and colorful jewel, representative of the sun and light of Italy. Ceramic lemons are molded from clay. The entire model is cut into two halves, emptied
out of the excess clay and then closed again.
This delicate operation gives the jewel lightness and perfect portability.
The white terracotta clay is fired in a ceramic kiln at 1000°C.
The second firing with colors and glazes takes place at 920° centigrade.
The leaves and flowers are also individually modeled by hand and decorated with a brush with metal oxides for ceramics. The base of the hair clip is made of brass.
