Mosaic Fish Trivet (Medium). Armenian Ceramic
Size: 6.9" X 6.9" / 17.5 X 17.5 cm
This gorgeous trivet will threaten to outshine the dinner you prepared! The ceramic tile has been set into a lacquered wooden frame. It features a representation of the famous 4th century Christian fish mosaic excavated from an ancient church in Tabgha on the shores of the Galilee.
Each individual item is hand made with ceramic clay. Once complete it is placed in an oven at temp. 1000°C until hardened. Each piece is then hand painted using metallic and oxidized paint in order to keep its natural color.
Again it is returned to the oven at the same temperature and finished with fine glazing.
