Agalis Manessi



Working within the tradition of majolica. Agalis’s work celebrates this rich historical medium through diverse influences ranging from the Italian Istoriato dishes to the simplicity of humble folk wares. Striving for a poetic mastery through pictorial representation and a freshness of palette, the painting belies the difficulty of the process. Once dipped in glaze, the modelled forms and vessels become like primed canvasses.
