Set of three Heart buttons

Set of three Heart ceramic buttons completely handmade. The gugjet shaped buttons are painted in red and white to recreate the heart image.
The set includes two larger buttons and one little: you can use them on a dress, for accessories, for realizing Christmas works and for decorating your home.
The gugjet is the distinctive symbol used in Carnia (the northern part of Friuli Venezia Giulia), and in ancient times donated to wives from their husbands. It is a heart originally made with metal materials and now as inspiration for many local crafters.

Ceramic and paintings materials are nontoxic and do not contain lead.

Because it is completely handmade, the final product can be a little different from that shown in the picture. Dimensions of 3 x 3 cm and 4 x 4 cm.



Pottery production and decoration requires specific manual skills both for large objects and for small products, such as buttons. Firstly, the artisan selects the grow material: Italian common clay as earthenware or more refined clays like porcelains or gres materials.
Then the buttons are modelled by hand or through special molds using clay sheets. The buttons are now dried and finished before being decorated. Pigments, colored clays, varnishes are usually used to garnish the buttons.
The buttons are realized and hand painted from the local factory Bottoni e non solo specialized in clay and pottery manufacturing.
The artisan produces several different and original shaped buttons, sometimes in partnership with external designers. Lately production is made up also of decorative objects such as hanging decorations, ceramic tags, mugs to donate as a gift or party favours.
