Plate Ø 21 cm pattern 8

8,42 EUR
The most defining motif on Horezu pottery is the rooster, portrayed by potters either strutting and proud or facing another rooster in an offensive pose, ready to fight. Romanians believe this bird is a sacred protector of the yard and house, but in each region of the country exist countless different rituals and beliefs regarding the rooster. It is known the rooster banishes away all evil spirits when it sings in the morning. Also, peasants know when to rise, sleep and eat thanks to its loud croaking, which can also predict the weather, incoming good or bad news and even uninvited guests.
Average measurements: height 4 cm; weight 500 grams.

The craftsmen families from Horezu, a small city in the south-western part of Romania, create traditional pottery by respecting ancient techniques and unique family secrets in the process of modelling, painting, glazing and burning the vases. Horezu pottery is the most representative Romanian pottery, its charm and beauty being appreciated worldwide. Moreover, in 2012 Horezu pottery was included in the cultural patrimony of UNESCO.
The plate is entirely hand made, so the product can differ slightly from the image shown. Each plate is signed by the artist; there are also two small holes on the back of the plate, so you can hang it on the wall. You can use the plate for serving warm or cold food. Our recommendation is to keep it away from the microwave and dishwasher in order to protect the glazing and the painting. In time, prolonged contact with hot liquids can degrade the glazing and may cause microfissures that will eventually alter the vases’ quality.
