Glaze the Town

Santo Stefano di Camastra on Sicily’s north coast has had a tradition of creating ceramic arts for many centuries. The townspeople started to exploit nearby clay pits to make tiles, earthenware, and bricks, certainly during medieval times, but more likely, centuries before. This image is from a series of painted tiles in one of the town’s main piazzas that document the craftsmanship of ceramic arts.
