It is a very ancient symbol and we find it in Egypt, in Babylon and in Greece as an image of the divine and immortality. Being a fruit generated by an evergreen, the pine cone symbolized life force and eternity.

The Pinecone is the fruit of the pine tree, which has always contained the symbolic meanings of life force, immortality, divinity, linked to the tree that generates it together with those of fertility and regenerating force for the seeds it contains.

The Sicilian popular tradition believes that it is useful to give pine cones to hang above the front door as a wish for health and good luck to the family who lives there. But the Pinecone is also found on balconies and entrance gates of ancient villas and noble gardens, monumental cemeteries, facades of churches and convents, up to populating the thrones of kings and popes as a materialization of the soul, the bridge that connects the land to the divine.

These meanings materialize in the hands of skilled ceramic artisans who make large and small pine cones. Today the Artistic Pine Cones, used as wedding favors, wedding gifts, interior and exterior furnishings or as a lamp base, remain an exclusive way of expressing a profound wish for well-being.

The process of creating our ceramics is divided into various meticulously curated phases, ensuring that each finished product is a unique and eternal work of art.

100% artisanal ceramic

For almost 20 years Sofia La Maiolica of Caltagirone has been involved in the artisanal production of unique majolica pieces, decorated and modeled by hand. They are inspired by the classic style of Caltagirone ceramics from all eras, made with unique glazes that recall the origins of the oriental world in which the colors were produced by the fusion of kaolin-based glazes. The manufacturing process that leads to the creation of our ceramics is divided into six important phases:

Turning, Drying, First firing, Enamelling, Decoration and Aging .

For each of these phases we dedicate the utmost care to every detail so that the final product is the result of a unique, inimitable and unaltered work over time. The main feature of purchasing a non-industrial product is precisely this: owning a unique product .
