Bencini Figurine: Choir Boys
Handcrafted In Italy, individually made and signed by the famous Dino Bencini.
Each piece is unique and very collectable. Bencini’s combination of fantasy and humour find expression in each of his sculptures.
CREATING Bencini FIGURINES
These remarkable figurines are completely hand made. There is absolutely no moulding, casting or wire armatures used in their creation. Each figure is first made ‘naked’ and then actually ‘dressed’ with thin sheets of ceramic. No cloth or string is used.
After dressing, the hair is carefully put in place, the fine strands having been previously prepared. Three controlled firings are required to complete the piece.
This method requires exceptional natural dexterity and experienced skill on the part of the creator.
This technique is found only in Italy.
