Lemon Sicilian


Purchased on a spring jaunt to the beautiful island of Sicily, Italy.

The ceramic shops of Ortigia in Syracuse, are filled with the bright colours of Maiolica, adorning every kind of household object or ornament you can think of. As you can imagine, this makes choosing one piece exceptionally difficult.

The lemon pot, was in a row of pots on top of a wardrobe. Each as different in size and decoration as can be, which meant although my eye was drawn to it, it didn't grab my attention. On the second visit, the pot was brought down for me to take a closer look. I admired the light flowing lines of the painted lemons and leaves, coupled with jade, ultramarine and a rosy glaze—I was sold!
