Sicilian Caltagirone 6″ Shoe Candlestick
Artisan Giacomo Alessi handcrafted this piece of Italian ceramics in his studio in Caltagirone, Sicily. He is not only a master of his craft, but he is also a scholar in the field. His work in both majolica and writing has been featured internationally but is especially cherished in Italy.
This Sicilian candlestick is 6″ in height and 8.5″ in length. Measurements are approximate. This candlestick is based on old hand warmers. Hot water was placed in the shoe, then held in one’s hands to warm them up.
