The Art

De Rosa Collections figurines are unique works of ceramic art designed by Uruguayan artisans and craftsman. Expert hands skillfully create every new product, always under the supervision of the De Rosa family.

Once a master design is approved, a mold is made and liquid ceramic is poured into this mold. When the semi-dry the figure's form is removed from the mold’ it is quite smooth and must be hand-carved before the moist ceramic hardens and becomes difficult to add texture, detail and personality.

Each figurine is carved by hand; no two subjects are ever carved exactly the same. When the carving is completely finished the figurine is ready for its first kiln firing.

The figurines are hand-painted with a colorful variety of ceramic slips and bright enamel glazes. When completed each figurine once again needs to be fired in the kiln.
