    You're going on this gorgeous style wonderfully.
    Give us some tutorial hint, pls, when You'll make next style change.
    Are the jar going to be usual old ones or Etruscan instead?

    Now, being I Know little of the Etruscans, I cannot answer your question..
    I do know, that they, just as my Sicilian ancestry loved olives.. Hence??

    We´ve got another beauty in the making! I simply love the gentle tones of your Tuscan landscape. And I´m still amazed by your textures.

    Let´s hope you´re "having loads of fun doing it." Otherwise, there´s not much point.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Well, I always enjoy your work, Rick.

    I wouldn't have pegged you as Sicilian. I would have thought more British Isles from your photo. But clearly your heart is in Tuscany.

    Just in case I'll attach these ancient ceramic and crate works form Etruscan Civilisation.
    http://www.canino.info/inserti/monog...amica_etrusca/
    They lived in the northern Latium and Southern Tuscany and challenged the Southern Italy Greeks until they lost in a huge naval battle. The Roman power took the dominance on both and integrated all cultures then all the other Mediterranean civilisations and beyond!
    The Etruscan language is still unknown except for few words. They were great engineers and a very sophisticated civilisation probably arrived in Italy from the Middle East even before the Greeks, Phoenicians and Romans.

    Good one, Caesar.

    I must say that link makes me very jealous. We have little representing the high artistry of the Ertuscans out here in Southern California. In fact I would have thought them pretty crude as a civilization from what I have seen based on a few weathered encaustic sarcophagus covers that held the portraits of the person buried. I love the weathered look, but it feels a bit folksy though inclined toward observation of the specific person being portrayed.

    But your link shows the pottery as if it were fashioned today. Beautiful. Thanks for changing my impression of their work.
