Eye of the Day is nothing if not a veritable mecca for terracotta pottery. We admire it, work with it, photograph it, describe it every day. And yet…and yet…we still get a little excited and a little dreamy when a new container is due to arrive at our door. Will there be new shapes, new colors, new sizes? How will we let everyone know what we have? How in the world did they stack them so high? And of course, is there anything broken?
About every six weeks our pulses run high, the color in our cheeks rise and we wait with high anticipation for our Rocco container. It’s almost like a holiday to bring the beautiful stacks out to the light and actually see what we ordered so many weeks before. We couldn’t un-glue our eyes from the glorious Conca Granduca when it first arrived. And the giant Vaso Imprunetino on it’s beautiful base seemed impossibly regal. It just keeps getting better and better. Imagine our excitement when we opened a recent container and were greeted with the magnificent colors of the Rocco Terre Colorate line: Etrusca, Muschio, Biancana, Vinaccia. Rocco is constantly working with new colors, styles and sizes and we are fortunate to be the beneficiaries of their bold, beautiful and artistic hard work.
