Master Design

De Rosa Collections figurines are unique works of ceramic art designed by Uruguayan artisans and craftsman.
Expert hands skilfully create every new product, always under the supervision of the De Rosa family.

Pouring The Mold

Once a Master Design is approved, a mold is made and liquid ceramic is poured into this mold. When semi-dry the figurine's form is removed from the mold; it is quite smooth and must be hand-carved before the moist ceramic hardens and becomes difficult to add texture, detail and personality.

Carving

Each figurine is carved by hand; no two subjects are ever carved exactly the same. When the carving is completely finished the figurine is ready for its first kiln firing.

Painting

The figurines are hand-painted with a colorful variety of ceramic slips and bright enamel glazes. When completed each figurine once again needs to be fired in the kiln.

Application Gold And Platinum

The application of gold and platinum mark the final step. These precious metals are used not only to accent the personality of the figurines, but to transform the Collection into the brightly colored jewels in the world of hand-crafted ceramic design.
