This ancestral symbol is present all over the world - the Tree of Life is part of humanity’s fundamental myths, for people always desired to be young and never get old and to live forever without dying. It is said between the Tree’s sacred leaves grow the fruits of eternal life and that the one sipping from its sap tastes the very elixir of life. On Horezu pottery the Tree of Life is painted either as a tall evergreen fir tree or as an arbor crowned with leaves. The Tree is always aiming for the sky, symbolizing the connection between Heaven and Earth. Its roots are deeply ingrained in the soil, just as all the souls of Romanians never leave the places where they grew up and lived; no matter where the person goes, the soul stays home. And so an old Romanian saying goes: never forget where you came from - never forget your roots.
Average measurements: height 4-5 cm; weight 600-750 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.
