Meticulously Cavalier Francesco Barbini and his wife has executed this Art piece and many other using the "Terzo Fuoco" technique. The name of this technique, means three time in the oven. There are other names used for this technique because it takes inspiration from the Rococò and the Barocco periods.
Materials used are gold 24K, ceramics colors and a special mixture of ceramic and glass. The "Terzo Fuoco" items goes through three principal phases. All phases are hand painted and in each stage the piece is cooked inside a special oven at 520C (about 968F). Before one piece is finished it is passed from hand to hand 27 times.
