Terracotta products obtained from the precious etnean terracotta, come in an array of sizes, forms and finishes such as: natural, plain color, brushed effects and decorated.
Terracotta is strictly hand crafted by mixing the clays from the Simeto Valley with the ground volcanic stone. It has a peculiar mineralogical composition giving to the finished product the best chemical-physical properties. The mixture is manually pressed into moulds having various shapes and sizes. Each tile is then processed again to avoid clay smudge. Finally it is put in the kiln to be fired.
“Handmade” is the key word in the manufacturing process characterizing the artistic production signed Studio Le Nid. The processing method is carried out in the laboratory set up in the town of Paternò. It consists of three phases: glazing, decorating and firing.
