Quattro (4). Package & card from my Aunt Karrie!!! Thank you so much. Look at this sweet card.
Cinque (5). A warm bear hug from my mom!!! Well, it was the thought of such a hug, and that’s what counts. Thanks, Mama. I miss you, too.
Here is the down and dirty of Caleca ceramics. We start with photos of the factory, inventory shelves and the process of cutting and pressing ceramic placemats.
This worker slices chunks of clay to place into a press, peel off and lay the resulting placemat on a cart to dry for a few days; then it bakes in the kiln for several hours.
Queuing for the methane gas oven kiln.
Plates dipped in special sauce.
Then, this woman…
…applies these labels before another baking.
Finally, the dish may come to these artists, who were in yesterday’s post.
