The Making Of Artesania Rinconada

The Artesania Rinconada Collection was started in the early 1970's by twin brothers Jesus and Javier Carbajales of Montevideo, Uraguay. Each Artesania Rinconada figurine is carved by hand and detailed with fine grain earthware ceramic material. After the first kiln firing, the figurines are hand-painted with colored slips and enamel glazes to accent the individual design characteristics. Then, each enamel glaze must be re-fired individually in order to preserve its unique coloration. All Silver Anniversary Collection pieces are decorated with Platinum and 18Kt Gold accents and fired for a third time to create these unique and elegant figurines.
